We need to connect a number of remote servers to Hitachi USP100 storage system. We have two SW24000 with two 16-ports 2 Gb blades each. We have also a pair of iSCSI Gateways in a cluster.

Thank you for help. It seems I need to develop a connection scheme which includes SW7500. At least it is compatible with SW24000. Or risk to use a mixed scheme with Cisco MDS9216 switches.

->>> ....All the servers have FC HBAs installed so the simplest way to connect them is to buy a pair of SW4100, buy long range extentions for both SW4100 and SW24000, and connect them directly.<BR> <BR>The best way is, you replaced one 24000 ,whit a new 48000. You can install in the 48K FR4 and FC4 blade, have a better solution and save Money. Only one 7500 is add. requiered for the 24K site, but only if you will Create a Routing at this site, otherview is not necessary.<BR><BR>I'm willing to help by design, please create whit Visio any MAP you SAN Locationa and Post here.<BR><BR>->>> But other sites are far away (100-200 kilometers),....<! graemlin:>Or you have a Little Patience, a new Director would coming surely soon...
