Should half the NICs show as "Not used" in vmware iSCSI bindings?

Hi

Just set up our CS215 and have a question about the iSCSI initiator bindings.

We have set up with a single vSwitch to use for iSCSI with multiple (4) kernel ports (1 per NIC with other NICS marked as unused in the failover on the port).

I have bound the ports but only 2 out of the 4 show as active with the other 2 showing the path status as "Not Used"  Despite this the devices are showing 4 connections per device.

Is this correct, should only half the ports show as active?

Thanks in advance

Andy

OK, I've answered my own question.  It appears the trunk wasn't set up properly between the two switches.

Everything working perfectly now on all 4 ports.
