server 2012 and hyper-v networking
Posted on 2013-01-24
We currently have a 2U server with hyper-v installed. there are 6 physical NIC cards (2 onboard nics and 4 on a quad port nic card) and SAS drives within it in a RAID 10 config.
the intention is the run a few servers: DC, exchange, Terminal, database and a couple other servers all as virtual machines.
The rest of the network is also all running on the same subnet with end user workstations, printers, etc...
Wondering what is the best way to configure the networking? Obviously we will have a management nic, but then have 5 left over
Is it a good idea to team the nic's? What are some best possible methods?
