Physical NICs Teaming for CUCM and UCCX virtual deployments

Unanswered Question

Hello.


There is UCS C210-m2 with six Gigabit Ethernet physical interfaces.

UCCX and two nodes are CUCM should be deployed on UCS.

Is supported the configuration vSwich with aggregated physical network interfaces in a load-balancing mode (IEEE 802.3ad)?


I found an official description of the settings teaming only here: http://docwiki.cisco.com/wiki/UCS_Network_Configuration_for_Unified_CCE

But this document for CCE.



Regards,

Alexander.

Thank You,

The recommended best practice configuration when using this tested reference configuration is:

  • One or two pairs of teamed NICs for UC VM traffic. One pair is usually sufficient on C200 due to the low load per VM.
  • One pair of NICs (teamed or dedicated) for VMware-specific traffic (e.g. management, vMotion, VMware High Availability, etc.)
NoteNote:On a server with both LOM and PCIe NIC ports, when creating a NIC teaming pair, use one port from the LOM and one from the PCIe. This splits the team across the motherboard and PCIe card, and protects against a failure of either PCIe card or the motherboard ports.

If using specs-based VMware support, other LAN interconnect options may be used, such as using Cisco VIC in NIV mode instead of multiple physical NICs.

"NIC teaming pair"  is likely to mean "failover".

I can't find a document describing the "load balancing" for CUCM and UCCX virtual deployments.
