Complete IB-iSER to/from IB-SRP, NVMe over InfiniBand, NVMe over RoCE conversion, or NVMe over Fiber Channel

After you apply the feature pack key to convert the protocol used by your InfiniBand iSER HIC port to/from SRP, NVMe over InfiniBand, NVMe over RocE, or NVMe over Fiber Channel you need to configure the host to use the appropriate protocol.

Steps

  1. Configure the host to use the SRP, iSER, or NVMe protocol.

    For step-by-step instructions on how to configure the host to use SRP, iSER, or NVMe, see the Linux Express Configuration .

  2. To connect the host to the storage array for an SRP configuration, you must enable the InfiniBand driver stack with the appropriate options.

    Specific settings might vary between Linux distributions. Check the NetApp Interoperability Matrix for specific instructions and additional recommended settings for your solution.

After you finish

Your host protocol conversion is complete. You can resume normal operations.
