iSER Configuration

  • 1.  iSER Configuration

    Posted 5 days ago
    I sold a solution for a client that needed pass through a RQP process. It is a FS7200 with iSER RoCE connectivity for a VMware environment in DELL servers through a DELL Z9100.
    It's a first for us and we are facing some issues in the implementation.
      
    In this document https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/ST3FR7_8.4.0/com.ibm.fs7200_840.doc/svc_aboutiser.html it says: "Multiple sessions from iSER hosts, with a maximum of four sessions from one iSER host to each system iSER target."
    In this other document https://www.ibm.com/downloads/cas/DP2BJ2ZJ it says the same: "A maximum of up to four iSER host-attach sessions from an iSER initiator to each target node can be established."
     
    I would like do certify two things:
     
    (1) This is a limitation of the iSER protocol or it's a Flashsystem Software implementation limit ?
    (2) We have little experience with iSCSI/iSER implementations, so I would like to clarify which of this two drawings represents correctly those affirmations:

    If you have experience with this type of implementatio, any tips would be very usefull.

    Thanks in advance for your help!
