Hi @samtula 

This is one of those “It Depends” questions, as it depends on how your infrastructure is set up, but in general “Auto” does a great job of selecting the best transport mode for your situation – but you can manually change it if needed. 

We have a video that covers the topic of transport modes in detail.

You can also find more detailed information on SAN, HotAdd, NAS and NBD/NBDSSL transport modes on our documentation site. 

If that answers your question, feel free to mark this post as the correct answer.

Thanks!

In most of the cases you should be using Auto Transport mode and for any reason Auto is not working as expected then you can go choose other transport mode manually.
