Using Appliance Ports for NAS

Using Appliance Ports for NAS

Hey all connecting a NAS to UCS. Would like to plug in directly to FI’s using the Appliance Port option.

Are the steps basically

  • Turn on Ports use as Appliance Ports
  • Make PIN Group through Appliance Ports (this will only be one port per FI, I am guess Port-Channels can be used if NAS supports that?)
  • Make VLAN internal to UCS
  • Make vNIC Template and use newly created VLAN and PIN Group

Boom!

Right?

Thanks!

I have made port 20 on each 6120 an Appliance Ports.

Each port is assigned to a VLAN made under the Appliances tab.

Cannot seem to make a PIN group using these Appliance ports. They are not a option.

Is there something I am missing?

Thanks!

Can you please specify what kind of devices are you going to connect to these appliance ports ? I mean are they going to be FCoE target or iSCSI target?

Thanks,

NFS

Thanks. I will assume you are connecting iSCSI storage target ports at the appliance port and iSCSI target will have NFS share.
