So, I'm getting a bit confused here. I have a
Dell MD3200 SAN with dual controllers. Each controller has an Ethernet management port that connects to a switch. Together the two controllers connect to independent switches for redundancy.
I'm building out my failover cluster and was told that I should have the SAN management port running over the same subnet, which will isolated to a VLAN. If I just leave it at that, it makes sense, however, if I want to manage the SAN out-of-band through the network on a server that's not on the subnet/VLAN, I won't be able to.
So, the question is, if I have a
10.0.1.X subnet for my servers and a
10.0.2.X subnet for the failover cluster do I make the SAN a part of
10.0.2.X? I personally think I should leave it on
10.0.1.X, but I figure I'd ask just in case.
Just to give you more info, the servers in question are
Dell R710s (x2) with x8 1GbE ports. The switches are
Dell 6224s (x2). I was planning on the servers having 3 teamed connections. 2 ports on a "Public" team, 2 ports on a "Private" team (for the cluster) and 4 ports for the "Virtual Machines" team.
The SAN is an
MD3200, not the
MD3200i. It connects to the servers with SAS via redundant HBA cables.
The cluster is going to be a Windows Server 2008 R2 Failover Cluster for Hyper-V.
