Most of ESX servers that I have seen so far, have only 2 Uplink ports (physical Nics) that connect to a physical switch. those 2 Uplinks will carry traffic for Vmkernel, Vm port group, may be more….
I know that there are ESX servers that have many Uplinks, that way Admins can dedicate each port for some traffic (Vmkernel, Vm port group,) they can dedicate specific Vlans, to go through specific Uplink ports.
However I have not seen any ESX with multiple uplink ports. Can someone give me an example of an ESX server with multiple uplink ports, a link with pictures will be much more helpful.
