    MFSYS35 network modules

    walkersway

      Due to issues using shared LUNS via an external SAS storage unit, we have decided to go with a iSCSI device.

       

      We have two blades installed which run XEN OS.

       

      We have two switch modules installed. Only one of these is being used. and has two internal connections from this switch to each XEN server which we have bonded.

       

      Ideally I would like to use the 2nd switch module to connect the iSCSI storage unit.

       

      looking in the modular server control i can see the 2nd switch unit and there are no external connections. What is surprising me is that Server 1 and Server 2 ports are enabled but show as down. I would have thought these would be up, but if i look at the XEN boxes they do not see these ports either.

       

      Does anyone have any ideas how i enable these so the XEN servers see a total of 4 ports, 2 from the existing switch and two from this one?

       

      Thanks.
