We're about to plan the deployment of some new virtual machines, based on vmware.
Switching is based on cat6500/sup72 running native IOS.
Virtual machines should be deployed on several VLANs.
just thinking of putting 4 netcards on server:
- 1 for management, on access interface
- 3 in L2 etherchannel, with trunking enabled.
this layout would let me have etherchannel load balancing, and multiple VLAN configuration.
1) any suggestions/improvements on proposed configuration?
2) any hint on configuration of either switch or vmware?
