If I have a Blade with has 4 nics(not sure but I guess first 2 is on Swtich and and second 2 is on Switch B) What is the best way of utilizing it achieving REdundancy and Vms.
Shall I use First NIC for ESX Management and Nic2 for VMs?? Appreciate advise.

Hi

The Hp GBE2 Interconnect Switch supports for all types of Servers NIC teaming,
and it has High Availability Enhancements by VRRP.

So utilizing VRRP between the GBE2 switches is a good idea, in adition to NIC teaming for redundancy and high throughput.

Good Luck !!!
