best connections for msa 1040

Hi all, I'm looking for thoughts on best way to connect a Msa 1040 (2 controller each with 2x 10gb sfp connections) to go to 2 VM hosts ( HP dual 10gb card in each). .... would direct connect be best for this ?

Direct connect would not be best practice, and since you have two ports per server a dual redundent setup is available (if you have the switches). Best practice white paper is here; http://h20195.www2.hp.com/v2/GetPDF.aspx%2F4AA4-6892ENW.pdf

Re: best connections for msa 1040

OK thanks but its the way I've been given.... I've assigned different subnets per port as the best practice , a vmkernal network is setup for each lan card,iscsi on VMware can connect to all luns with the discovery but connections are lost if I shut down the MSA controller A , shutting controller B is ok
