ISCSI and Hyper-V with Nimble

Hi

Is ISCSI supported on Hyper-V server 2019 with NIC teaming.

That is ISCSI is using shared NIC (seperate VLAN) with NIC teaming

do I need to Install MPIO if I have two VLANs for ISCSI?

Regards

No. I am not aware of any OS with which one would use NIC teaming for iSCSI.

Install MPIO for the multipathing.

Install HPE Storage Windows Toolkit (NWT) for optimal use.

We certainly can't make them use the Windows Toolkit, but it is a HPE Nimble Storage best practice.

Having a Hyper-V operation, I'm guessing they have a cluster. I assume they could try with one system with NWT and the other following the Microsoft forum's notes. See if there's a difference in performance, see if there's a difference in HA tolerance during system testing.
