Hyper-V 3 (Server 2012) Networking configuration
Posted on 2013-05-21
I'm looking to deploy Hyper-V 3 on Server 2012 onto our blades which currently run another hypervisor.
I'm finding conflicting advice when searching for networking information saying the 4 NICs on each physical host is reccommended. The thing is, we have blades, which have dual NICs via dual pass through modules into two top of rack switches.
The plan is to aggregate a port from each switch per blade giving a resilient link with the aggregate having access to production vlans. Is this the way to do it? I understand that 4 NICs gives mgmt, v-motion, plus dual data connectivity, however we don;t have 4 NICs.
For reference, storage is provided via Fibre Channel.
