HNAS multi-tenancy limits

Server and Cluster Administration Guide for Hitachi NAS Platform

Part Number

Multi-tenancy can only be enabled if all cluster nodes are multi-tenant capable, and are all online. It also requires an EVS Security license.

Multi-tenancy cannot be enabled:
  • if any EVS is configured with global security settings. Resolve this by setting the EVSs to individual security by issuing the evs-security command and copying the required configuration.

  • if a deprecated VLAN subnet is still configured in the system, a VLAN interface must be used. Remove VLAN subnets by using the vlan remove-all command. Create appropriate VLAN interfaces using the using vlan-interface-create command.
  • If a cluster namespace is configured, issue the namespace-delete command before enabling multi-tenancy.
