Virtual Connect Flex-10 and vSphere best practise?

I have a vSphere cluster on BL495c blades connected to Flex-10.

On ESX hosts default outbound loadbalancing is used for redundancy.

I can remove or shutdown each virtual connect module and still have network access from the virtual environment.

But recently during virtual connect firmware upgrade I noticed that HA reported the hosts isolated, and the virtual machines lost network access.

Since this incident I activated Smart Link, but is not convinced that it is sufficient.

Is there a cookbook or best practise for this setup?
