VM and storage experts over there can give me an idea which way to design the switch?
Here is my situation, We have ver4.1 esx hosts which are connected to nfs and iscsi.
Both protocols are on same subnet and working ok for years (I do not know about ver4.1, but it is working eventhough they all in same network and link aggregation IP hash).
I am on board now to upgrade this network.
I was told to stay with same network layout as it is and upgrade the esx.
Now my problem is that we have link aggregation with 3 physical nics.
I have iscsi and nfs on same subnet.
This is what I am thinking of doing
create one vswitch with three vmkernel port as on the picture
for iscsi- one active and 2 unused-this will allow me to bind the vmkernel port
for NFS- three active
If i use one vmkernel port then I will put three nic active, but I can not bind vmkernelport to iscsi.
I will appreciate if you put your design,
Please note that I can layout the network with separate vlans.
