I was wondering if someone could help me with my configuration. I'm new to Nexus Switching, SAN configuration, and USC management. I'm afraid that I may destroy our SAN zoning.
SAN Switch A - MDS9148 - VSAN1 is our only VSAN
SAN Switch B - MDS9148 - VSAN1 is our only VSAN
Core Switchs - 6504's in VSS Mode
Nexus 5000 A - (connected to VSS and SAN Switch A) (NPV and NPIV disabled) VSAN1 bound to VLAN 201
Nexus 5000 B - (connected to VSS and SAN Switch B) (NPV and NPIV disabled) VSAN1 bound to VLAN 202
Hope to Acomplish:
6248 A - Unified Port Channel to Nexus 5000A
6248 B - Unified Port Channel to Nexus 5000B
1) Both fabrics use VSAN1. If the 6248's do not participate in the fabric (which I believe is the default), can I just map a VSAN1 to VLAN201 and a VSAN2 to VLAN202 in the UCS Manager.
2) I would like to connect the 6000's to our SAN, but it don't want them to destroy our zoning. When I create the VSANs and bind them to the VLANs in the UCS manager software, I choose "Do not participate in SAN fabric". Will this keep our existing fabric safe. Also, do I have to enable the NPIV feature on the 5000's and will that cause any issues.
