Hi,

1) I saw a vmware server; the nama is "vmware 20"
2) There are 6 physical network adaptors as follows:
-The built-in Nics: Interface 0 and Interface 1
-The additional Physical Nics: Interface 4, Interface 5, Interface 6 and Interface 7
3) there are 2 vm networks in this server:
- vmnetwork#1 and vmnetwork#2
4)The vmnetwork#1 has the followings:
-It is in the 61 subnet
- the "Vmnic6": 192.168.61.1 - 192.168.61.63
-the "Vmnic4": 192.168.61.1 - 192.168.61.63
-the "Vmnic0": 192.168.61.1 - 192.168.61.63
5) The vmnetwork#2 has the followings:
-It is in the 75 subnet
-the "Vmnic 7": 192.168.75.20 - 192.168.75.20
-the "Vmnic5": 192.168.75.20 - 192.168.75.20
-the "Vmnic1": 192.168.75.20 - 192.168.75.20

6) The Subnet 61 is for the INTRANET and INTERNET (Every server and workstation will be in this subnet)
7) The Subnet 75 is only communication to the SAN (Storage Area Network)
8) Per Statement of one of the experts, he/she said that the above nic team up is related to the Load Balancing
9) MY QUESTIONS: i) Would you proposed another options of the nics team up for the above?
10)Thank you
