I have a question about vfilers. Currently, I have one vfiler in its own interface group(vlan tagging) NET1-440 and its own ipspace called Z_ipspace in FilerA. Everything is setup ok, I have FilerB setup with the same interface and ipspace called Z_ipspace and failover to that interface on FilerB works fine. FilerA and FilerB are HA
Here is my question:
I want to create another vfiler in FilerB but I also want it to be in NET1-440 and Z_ipspace. Is that possible? What do I need to watch out for?
No problem doing this...if using a different interface net2-440 it will ifconfig on that network (make sure to ipspace assign if a new interface) and if the same net1-440 interface, the script will create an ifconfig alias to multihome the port with the ip for vfilerB. The vFiler's will share the routing table so the vfiler run route add default will work for both vFilers as long as both use the same default gateway (which they should in the same network) but if not you might need some route add statements but not likely. It is common to have multiple vFilers in the same IPspace. The restriction is that a vFiler can only be a member of one ipspace but not the other way where IPspaces can be shared by multiple vFilers.
