Add EqualLogic PS6610 with two 10Gb Fiber Nics into our vmware as an iSCSI datastore

I am familiar with the process of setting up an EqualLogic for iSCSI storage via a standard VMware switch, and having dedicated 1Gb nics, on individual esxi servers... we have since upgraded to a VxRail appliance that has 4 nodes with two 10Gb nics each, and we are using the VMware distributed switch and VLAN's, since we no longer have 12 dedicated 1Gb nics to work with.  This is my first time I am setting up an EqualLogic that also has two 10Gb nics into our distributed VMware switch on it's own VLAN and I think I have it setup but would like to know if there is any documentation on doing this so that I can check to make sure I have done this correctly and have it setup up properly before we start using it and putting data on it.  Thanks!

Equallogic has all the documents and best practices on their Support Website, also if you have paid for it at Dell, Dell Engineering will examine your environment, and configuration and make further recommendations and sign off, in a Report PDF they send you back.

It's a good document to give to your Management! that everything is okay with Dell for Production, just in case of later performance issues down the road...
