Hai All,

I have few questions to ask..
i already have a setup of GPFS Cluster on SAN with mulipathing (total 12 TB Volumes) And planning to go for a Another One With GFS + ISCSI with Multipathing And NIC Bonding

So my doubt are about
1, Multipathing
2, NIC Bonding


For iscsi in linux you can use network bonding or dm-multipath or maybe even both :) For example, you can use bonding on the initiator over multiple host NICs, and use dm-multipath to multpath over multiple target portals.


3, Whats the Option for ISCSI Multipath same as RDAC in SAN

Not exactly sure what you mean by this. Are you thinking about RDAC as in Engenio's RDAC where we might need to do some sort of manual failover?
