Dell N4032 switches

Hi All,

 

I recently purchased a pair of Dell N4032 24port 10GBe switches to connect our Nimble CS260 to 5 VMWare host servers. The Nimble has the 4 1GBe data connections per controller and servers are connecting via 4 1GBe links each. I recently tried to migrate to these new switches from our core Cisco Catalyst kit, but this brought about a lot of iSCSI errors on the VMWare hosts on boot up whilst trying to connect to volumes on the Nimble.

 

My question(s) is(are) this:

Has anyone used these switches successfully in conjunction with a Nimble SAN, if so what configuration did you use on the switches?

Do the switches need to be linked together, or should it work with them as fully separate units (I tried the odd/even networking option, but still had the errors)
