Am looking for some recommendations and best practice advice for setting up 2 hyper-v hosts.
Both hosts are different spec:
One has 2TB local storage and VMs will be: file server, DC, FMSO role holder and application servers.
The other has 1TB local storage and VMs contain a DC, application and azure sync tools
Both hosts are dissimilar hardware and there is no shared storage. They have 4 NIC cards each.
Given the hardware limitations, I have been told that clustering the hosts will not be possible. Therefore I have teamed 2 NICs on each for management and 2 NICS on each for VM traffic which are bound to a virtual switch. This uses all of the available NIC cards on each hosts.
I have read that it is recommended to have 1 NIC dedicated for live migrations. Live migrations is an option I would like to have. (I would ideally like some sort of fail-over configuration too however I've been told this isn't possible)
Given the scenario above, Do you think that the configuration is optimal? Alternatively, what best practice advice would you suggest be for setting up the NICS on each host?
thank you for reading.
