    NIC Teaming and vDS

    dauphin77 Enthusiast

      Hello all,


      I have a question regarding NIC Teaming and vDS. I have multiple ESXi hosts with 4 physical nic's each and plan on utilizing vDS with NIC Teaming across 2 switches to have full redundancy over my management/production network. I plan on trunking my switches (3 hosts per cluster) and teaming 2 nic's across each switch to ensure full redundancy.  Additionally I plan on using route based by IP hash.


      Is this correct? Am I missing anything? I have researched vDS and NIC Teaming but still uncertain based on my requirements for full redundancy; ESXi hosts, management network, production network, switches etc.


      Any guidance suggestions would be appreciated.
