Good afternoon, we have recently purchased
-two Cisco Catalyst 2960-x switches -two Dell PowerEdge 320R server -1 EMC vNXE 3300-1 storage device
I'm having a difficult time configuring the networking between all these devices. The intention is to run two vSphere 5.5 esxi hosts on the two Dell servers. One switch is going to be used for regular network traffic on a 10.10.x.x subnet and the other switch will be used for iSCSI traffic on a 172.10.x.x subnet. I've created a diagram of how I have the wiring:
I'm not sure what I've configured incorrectly but I cannot ping anything from the EMC device that is on the 10.10.x.x network. I'm not very familiar with Cisco switches but I have used the basic web interface to turn on Cisco switch basic configuration for every port except the 1st. I've gone ahead and created two iSCSI servers on the EMC device, one for each SP-A and SP-B. The information I've assigned to them is as follows:
SP-A-Eth2 = 18.104.22.168 SP-A-Eth3 = 22.214.171.124
SP-B-Eth2 = 126.96.36.199 SP-B-Eth3 = 188.8.131.52
I would greatly appreciate any suggestions on what I might have wrong... I'm at a stand still....
