RAID NIC?? Not sure what you are referring to here. Can you elaborate a bit.
Per to the above fig: i am referring to labelled port 8 which is the raid NIC, i have already used labelled port 3 and 4 for management IP1 and management IP2 respectively.
There is a network firewall in-between all subnets and systems within these subnets do not interface due to strict internal security policies.
Since port labelled 3 and 4 have been utilized, i intend to activate and use labelled port 5, 6 and 8, labelled port 5 for subnet 1 and labelled port 6 for subnet 2 while labelled 8 for network storage [NAS] for now direct physical connection is how subnets can communicate with the appliance.
