iSCSI SAN... separate switch?
Just powered up and configured the NetApp StoreVault S500 iSCSI box we've had for a while but due to circumstances at the time haven't had time to get going until now.
Took a few goes as the software isn't the best but now it's up and running on the network, static IP assigned to one of the onboard NICs and connected a LUN to a new server I've set up for SMS, WSUS and all the other management tools on the network.
Question is whether I should set up another switch with separate IP addressing for the iSCSI traffic and use the 2nd NIC of the StoreVault for this. The first one would then be for management and I guess traffic for any shares I set up (it can do NAS and SAN).
I've got a spare HP 2810-24 switch we originally bought for use with this box so wouldn't need any extra stuff ordered, it's just whether it's a recommended setup or not?
