working on setting up 5.0 with HP BL490 blades with 10GB uplinks (no flex 10) to a new Isilon Cluster via NFS but the 490s only have 4 nics. what is best practices for only 4 NICS?
- first 2 nics
vmotion - nic 1 active / nic 0 standby
mgmt - nic 0 active / nic 1 standby
vm networks - nic 0/1 team
- second 2 nics
NFS - nic 0/1 team - Any special team?
You can use them in this way.
First 2 nics mgmt nic
0 active /1 standby
Second 2 nics for vmotion,nfs,VM: nic teaming
NFS vmkernel port - VLAN 1
vmotion vmkernel port - VLAN 2
VM group - VLAN 3
