A few days before i posted a short howto how to configure iSCSI multipathing with Nexenta. This post covers the configuration of the linux initiator using iSCSI multipathing.
Before we start a preleminary note: It is a very good idea (i´d call it: “required”) to use separate subnets for each physical interface. Do NOT use the same subnet accross different network interfaces!
For configuring and using iSCSI multipathing the following packages are needed:
Our testlab used a VM based on Oracle Enterprise Linux 6 Update 2 with two physical interfaces:
- eth1: 192.168.1.200/24
- eth3: 192.168.10.2/24
