So we purchased an Dell Equallogic 4100 SAN and I have the privilege of connecting our 2 RHEL 5.1 R3 Oracle Financial servers to it with Multipath. I have 3 NICs on the server:
ETH0 = 18.104.22.168/24 GW:22.214.171.124 (LAN)
ETH2 = 126.96.36.199/24 (SAN)
ETH3 = 188.8.131.52/24 (SAN)
The ETH0 is wired into the LAN switch and ETH2 and ETH3 are wired to the SAN switches (DELL 6224s stacked and configured for iSCSI)
I have bound the NICs to the initiator interfaces i created:
iscsiadm --mode iface --op=update --interface iscsi-0 --name=iface.net_ifacename --value=eth3
iscsiadm --mode iface --op=update --interface iscsi-1 --name=iface.net_ifacename --value=eth2
but for some reason, I cannot reach the SAN on 184.108.40.206 when doing a discovery! I cannot ping the SAN using a default ping, but when I specify an interface:
ping 220.127.116.11 -I eth3
it does reply.
How do set priority for the iscsi traffic to be bound to the ETH2 and ETH3 interfaces?
I can give more information if needed, I just didn't know what other information I could put on here to help.
