Hi everyone, I have a standard 2008R2 cluster that is serving only a clustered file server.  It has 4 NICs, public, heartbeat, and iSCSI-A and iSCSI-B for connection to the shared storage.

I'm comfortable with what protocols to unbind for each NIC.  My question what should my binding order be please ?
