How to perfectly configure a new SAN, Switch and Virtual Server
I've just purchased a DELL PowerVault MD1200 SAN and a Dell PowerConnect 5524 10GBe switch. I already have a virtual server.
Over the Summer I intend to virtualise a large majority of my Servers and I'd like to connect my SAN to the virtual server. I've got a fairly good idea of how to set it up but I just wanted to see how you would do this in order to maximise performance, redundancy and efficiency. I don't want to start down a path and then realise I've made a mistake at the very start!
A lot of people seem to suggest that your SAN switch should be on a seperate subnet mask to the rest of your network - is that correct?
