Hi all,

We have IBM N series storage controller which provide storage to esxi4.1.We have hosted out primary and secondary VSM for 1000V deployment on this ESXi4.1.

  1. We need to upgrade the storage firmware and I like to know if their is any possible impact on my 1000V.
  2. As this is a outage change [becuse of storage will bring dowm] i like to know why precautionary measure will be taken so that my nexus 1000v remain un affectted because of this storage controller upgradation change.
  3. If their is any link available for refference .

Thanks in advance.

Hey Chandan,

What is your storage?  NFS?  iSCSI?

If your storage controller is the same as you vmnic's then you should put the host's in maintenance mode and do the upgrade.

From there you will have no VM's running on the host so traffic won't be affected regadless.
