Soliciting recommendations for optimizing Network Performance using multiple NIC's in Server 2012 R2
Posted on 2014-09-21
Setting up a new Server 2012 R2 Box.
4 Dual Port nic's
Windows Server 2012 R2 as Hyper-V Host
1st Hyper-V Image as Domain Controller & File Server for 30 users
2nd Hyper-V image runs SQL Server 2014 for 7 users
3rd Hyper-V image runs CAD Server for 3-5 users
I originally wanted each VM to have 2 mapped Nic's available to it, but I am now wondering if there is a better way to do that. The Domain Controller will use the most bandwidth, then SQL, then the CAD Server.
Am I better to team 4 ports for the Domain Controller/File Server? Or am I better to link 7-8 ports together?
Thankyou for reading!
