Switches configuration in VMWARE environnement

Unanswered Question
Mar 26th, 2007


Is it possible to add some commands to improve VMWARE server connected to Cisco Switches.

The VMWARE Servers use the same card for whole servers on them.


I have this problem too.

Which switch is this ?

You can enable spanning-tree portfast on the the switchports connected to the server. Disable DTP/PAGP negotiations on the ports connected to the server.You can haddcode the speed/duplex on the ports and the serverside if you have any speed/duplex issues.
