I currently have:
**4 Servers (2012 R2 datacenter, dual xeon procs, min 96GB RAM) each with:
1. 2 x 1Gb ethernet ports
2. 2 x 10Gb ethernet ports
1 Switch (D-Link DGS-1510-28X) which has:
1. 24 x 1Gb ethernet ports
2. 4 x 10Gb ethernet ports
** I planned on using 3 servers for Hyper-V and 1 server as a 2012 R2 SAN. 1 Server has 2 Raid Controller Cards (16 x 1TB drives plus 1 SSD for OS) the other 3 servers have an OS drive and a smattering of 500GB hdds **
How would you utilize the network ports to layout your Hyper-V lab with the equipment I have? How would you cable and why? What would you VLAN?
side note: How can I maximize my learning on Hyper-V? I recognize that not everyone will have SMB3 but I don't think you can test Cluster Shared Volumes at the same time, correct?
Thank you for your time in advance!
