Configuring additonal server ports

David Rodriguez

Hi, if i'm using 2 server ports per chassis, and wish to add another 2, besides plugging in the cables and settings the ports on the interconnect for "Configure as Server Port" is there anything else that is needed and is there any disruption to traffic ?

Hello David,

If the links between IOM and FI Server ports are individual links, then you need to acknowledge the chassis to initialize the new links. This will cause network disruption for few seconds.

We do not need to re-acknowledge the chassis If there is a fabric port channel between IOM and FI.

Thanks for your reply Padma, re-acknowledging the chassis reboots all the blades does it ?

What about changing from individual links to port-channel, will this require a re-acknowledgement as well ?

Using individual links what method does the FI use for sending traffic down 1 link as opposed to the other ?
