Hyper-V Cluster on VRTX

hello gents

I just acquired a VRTX I want ton configure an Hyper-V Cluster . But i see in a lot of architectures documents that i should have a management network and a private network

But i created a Network team on each of the nodes . will it work ? so I guest every thing will be going on the same network

Point blank question: Has Dell resolved the dual SPERC parity performance problems? If not, then your only choice for RAID setup with the dual SPERC is RAID 10. Keep this in mind.

Building a cluster on VRTX without dual SPERC makes it a moot point as the single RAID controller becomes a single point of failure (SPF) and thus defeats the purpose.

IIRC, each node can be set up with four ports. Two on-board and two on a daughter card. Set up two teams in the Windows Server OS. One team on Port-0 of each NIC set and one team on Port-1.

Team 0 would be for your management network and Live Migration network.
Team 1 would be dedicated to your vSwitch (no host OS access).

If you want to you can VLAN out Team 0 for the LM network.

Hello I'm not an expert on network

But  I want to understand   my setup with one Team will not work by design or the performances will not be good?

I dont have daugthers cards . May be i dont know what is daugthers cards does this come by default? can i do the setup with the defaults cards? (Every server can have up to 4 cards)

Each node will have 2 NIC ports built-in. A daughter card can be added to the node that has 2 more Gigabit NIC ports built-in.

This would give you a total of 4 Gigabit NIC ports.

Two Gigabit NIC ports is doable but constrained. Create the one Team and VLAN off your Live Migration network.

Since they are Broadcom each port's Virtual Machine Queues (VMQ) setting needs to be turned off in the driver.

hello Philip

I dont know if you are referring to the Last VRTX but each node has 4 Nics

Do you have 2012 RTM/R2 installed on one of the nodes?

If yes, elevate a PowerShell session and:

Get-NetAdapter [Enter]

Thanks. The reason the ports in the above image are red is because there is no daughter NIC card installed in each node.

You only have two ports to work with in the current configuration. The PowerShell output confirms what we see in the VRTX management console.

That means that my advice above on a two port configuration still stands.
