Configure Gateway Functionality on a Metadata Controller (MDC)

The StorNext M660 Metadata Appliance and appropriately provisioned MDCs can be configured to also operate as a LAN gateway. The following instructions describe the steps to configure gateway functionality on MDCs.

Note: Do not enable gateway functionality for M662s connected to Lattus systems. While there are no functional issues in enabling the LAN gateway functionality within a Lattus environment, observed throughput when moving data to Lattus through the 10GbE ports will be slower than expected if this feature is enabled.
