Configure the switches

Contributors

You configure the switches according to the vendor’s recommendations for iSCSI. These recommendations might include both configuration directives as well as code updates.

You must ensure the following:

  • You have two separate networks for high availability. Make sure that you isolate your iSCSI traffic to separate network segments.

  • You must enable flow control end to end.

  • If appropriate, you have enabled jumbo frames.

Note Port channels/LACP is not supported on the controller’s switch ports. Host-side LACP is not recommended; multipathing provides the same benefits, and in some cases, better benefits.
