EMC VNXe 3100 NIC Configuration

I have an EMC VNXe 3100 with the following specs:

DPE - (12) 7200 RPM SATA 1TB Drives
DAE - (12) 15K SAS 600GB Drives

I am also using the EMC as a NAS as well serving out "Windows" CIFS Shares.

I have multiple LUNs carved out connected to Hyper-V servers and the VHDs are running on the LUNs.

I currently have the iSCSI ports connected to a 4510 Cisco Catalyst Switch.  Each port is configured as a TRUNK and I am tagging packets using the EMC device.

Is this the recommended configuration?  Is there a way to use LACP or some other method to TEAM or Bundle interfaces together for better throughput?

If you are talking about iSCSI and LACP, you do NOT want to do that. It is NOT supported in any way and there is no benefit to it. Please confirm that this is what you are asking for.

Yes, that is what I was asking.  With that being said.... What is the recommended configuration to get the best throughput out of the SAN in regards to iSCSI and the NAS piece?

Multpathing (MPIO) is what you should be looking to implement. Along with LACP, NIC teaming is another no-no. Server 2012r2 does allow for this but we have seen problems with this sort of setup.

See if this doesn't help guide you.
