Best practices for configuring 10GbE interfaces, to be used for iSCSI uplinks from VMWare servers?

I am trying to configure the SFP+ 10GbE ports on my 5412zl switch, that will be used solely for a dedicated iSCSI-based storage subnet.

Should the iSCSI interface ports be configured with both of the following configuration entries?

- spanning-tree admin-edge-port
- enable flow-control
- bpdu-protection (is this necessary if we are only using a single physical core switch for our iSCSI vlan and our default data vlan?)
