Greetings. We have our HP P2000 SAN (4 ports x 2 controllers = 8 ports) cross-connected to multiple switches (Cisco 2960g) for redundancy. The SAN ports are configured with a different internal IP range than our network (172.0.x.x vs 192.168.x.x). I just set up a new Windows Server 2012, teamed two of the onboard NICS (four total) in a failover configuration (non-aggregated) and used the team as the host for the iSCSI connection.
I've read that MPIO is preferable to Teaming for iSCSI. However, this is not inside a Hyper-V environment and there's just one "active" NIC, with the other set up as "standby". Is this setup OK ? Is there a good reason why I should not continue with this setup and go with MPIO instead ?
