SAN IP Configuration
Hi Ladies & Gents,
I'm just doing a little bit of research into how to set up a Hyper-V Cluster and I have a question that my Google-Fu has failed me on.
If I have a Cluster set up, what IP address system is used on the network between the SAN and the Hosts?
Would you use a private address range (192 or similar), or connect the switch(es) up to the general network and create a VLAN to control traffic?
Thanks in advance, Ben
You will always use a different address range for SAN traffic and unless you were super tight on funds you will keep those switches separate from your main network (bar a possible management link, different vlan etc).
