    NICs needed for VMware Validated Design and Config

    wagnerr_bio Lurker

      I haven't had to setup a VMware environment for some time but in my new role that is exactly what my next task it. I need to build up a new 4 node consolidated VVD cluster. The servers I have have 2 - 10GB NICs and 2 - 1GB NICs. In the VVD documentation it states that 2 - 10gb nics and a single 1gb nic is required but nic teaming is encouraged so I had planned on teaming the 1gb nics on my servers. What I didn't see was what functions each NIC will do. I didn't see what kind of traffic each nic will carry. Perhaps I just missed that info but I am wondering if someone can tell me what are the network functions for each nic and what kind of traffic will each nic carry. Thanks
