Scenario 3 in the iSCSI Cookbook http://h20628.www2.hp.com/km-ext/kmcsdirect/emr_na-c02533991-8.pdf shows examples of this configuration.

Ultimately its not an HP Question.

 

It all depends on if the iSCSI Storage vendor can support their NICs as completely independent channels that will never be able to talk to each other.

 

Basically Teaming = No, proper iSCSI Multipath = Probably.
