Standard practice vSwitch design?

snyderkv asked
Last Modified: 2020-03-02
We have sites with inconsistent vSwitching configurations so I wanted to ask for a good vSwitching document that lays this out based on most setups in the field.

One layout we have is 4 vmnics going to  two upstream Nexus switches.
vmnic0 and 2 going to Nexus A
vmnic1 and 3 going to Nexus B

vmnic0 and vmnic 1 connected to Mgmt, server port groups and vMotion.
vmnic 2 and vmnic 3 connected to Mgmt, Storage and vMotion.

It's all on vSwitch0. It just doesn't look right and theirs configuration drift among other hosts as well.
