We have a small network with C2960S stack switches for the core, a few C2960G switches for end-point access and a 1921 router. We also have a VMWare ESXi server running our file server VM.
Is it better to have our file server have a vNIC on each subnet, or have users inter vlan route through the 1921 to the file server's vlan (vlan1)? I'm concerned about performance and the 1921 being a bottle neck. Our switches do not support L3 routing. Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
