Equallogic PortForwarding and Server 2008 R2

Well, previously https://michaelellerbeck.com/2009/11/30/so-you-bought-an-equallogic-san-now-what-part-two/

I would use the venerable rinetd to handle portforwarding on windows. But alas, along comes server 2008 R2 and it doesn’t working anymore (actually I never tested, it might work)

But, Server 2008 R2 has built in functionality for port forwarding (nifty!)


So I just gave it a

netsh interface portproxy add v4tov4 listenport=25 listenaddress= connectport=25 connectaddress=

Now I point the equallogic to (an address reachable on the san network) (It requires two nics on the ‘bridge’ server of course one on each network)

And now I can get the email alerts out! Nifty

#vmware #Equallogic config continues (Fun in my little room)

So even though I’m spending a lot of time trying to break test my VMware setup. (Just starting to cable up the SAN network)












At least the monitor on the wall I get to use is ridiculously huge 🙂















Some interesting EqualLogic posts I have ran across

This was a pretty strange issue that Joseph experienced.


The below thread is an interesting thread going back and forth between various storage and EQL


Continued working on my equallogic to lefthand comparison blog

These two posts have the shiniest graphs 🙂
