VC Load balancing

Hi,

With the following config what is the best way to achieve load balancing across the two vNets to ensure best utilisation? At present DATA1 gets hit first and hardest.

- Configuration at the Cisco switch level?
- Profile ordering of vNets?

VC NETWORK CONFIGURATION

Name: DATA1
Type: Ethernet network
Ports: Bay 1 port X2 (active -> switch 1)
Bay 2 port X2 (passive -> switch 2)
Connection Mode: Failover
Smart Link: Enabled

Name: DATA2
Type: Ethernet network
Ports: Bay 6 port X2 (active -> switch 2)
Bay 5 port X2 (passive -> switch 1)
Connection Mode: Failover
Smart Link: Enabled

Each server profile has both DATA networks 1 & 2.

Port trunking is enabled at the Cisco switch to present the same set of multiple VLAN's over each port.
