We have 2 HP DL 380 Gen 8 servers  with windows 2012 installed on  each of them.
Each server has four NIC's . We are setting up a HyperV cluster. Out of the 4 NIC's, 2 NICs would be teamed for VM traffic. one NIC and ISCSI traffic and one NIC for heartbeat.
We are using HP P2000 as shared storage . On HP P2000 4 NIC are plugged to the iSCSI vlan.
So my question is do I need to install MPIO's on the windows 2012 servers. I thinking as we are using just one NIC on each server for iSCSI traffic we don't need to.
