Server 2012 NIC Teaming - SMB Traffic on specific VLAN/NIC Teaming
Posted on 2014-12-19
I've got a Scale Out File Server setup in a 2 node cluster with JBOD storage. I've also got two Hyper-V servers which will be utilizing this as it's storage over SMB 3.0
I want to use converged fabrics in the Hyper-V hosts. There's 8 1GB NICS in the Hyper-V hosts and 4 1GB NICS in the SOFS.
On the Hyper-V hosts I want to make a NIC team of 6Gbps and put storage, heartbeat, management and live migration all down that pipe. I'll have another NIC team of x2 1Gbps connections for VM traffic.
How do I ensure certain traffic in the 6Gbps NIC team goes on the correct VLAN? At the minute it's just going to go over the management VLAN. I've got VLANS for Storage, LM and Cluster Heartbeat and the NICS can see them all because the ports they're plugged into on the switch are all trunk ports.
Anyone know how I would achieve this?
