What Configuration Steps do I need to perfrom on my switch to allow loadbalancing and Failover on the connection to my ESXi Server
Posted on 2009-12-21
I am in the process of trying to configure a new ESXi Host and connecting it to the Network and was wondering any anyone could please advise on how to configure load balancing and Failover on the network Connections to the ESXi Host?
I have got the basics working on the ESXi Server by basically creating different VSwitches for each of my different requirements and then assigning one NIC to each VSwitch and connecting them to access ports on the Network Switch e.g. 1 VSwitch for for Management, one for storage and one to host Virtual Machines each with one NIC assigned to the VSwitch.
What I am unsure of is how to configure the Load balancing and failover setting when I add addtional NICs to each VSwitch and specifically whether or not I need to configure any addtional Settings on My 6224 Network Switches such as configuring LAG groups etc.
Any assistance or advise on how to set up these features would be greatly appreciated
