recommendations for XenServer network configuration on B200M2
We are just starting a XenApp / XenDesktop / VDI project at our company. I'm very familiar with VMware as that is the hypervisor we primarily use on UCS. I'll be using XenServer for this project though as the licensing comes with the Citrix licensing. Does anybody have a recommended configuration for the nics in a XenServer running on UCS B200M2's. The adapters in the B200M2's are the M81KR's so I was going to setup them up similar to how I setup and ESXi server.
That would be the following:
Management network (this would use the same native vlan that I use for the management network of my ESXi hosts)
1 nic on fabric A that doesn't failover for the management network (bonded with nic listed below)
1 nic on fabric B that doesn't failover for the management network (bonded with nic listed above)
XenMotion (this would use the same native vlan that I use for VMotion in VMware)
1 nic on fabric B that can failover to fabric A
Guest / VM Network (this I would use vlan tagging to add the appropriate networks for my desktops)
1 nic on fabric A that doesn't failover for guest / vm network connectivity (bonded with nic listed below)
1 nic on fabric B that doesn't failover for guest / vm network connectivity (bonded with nic listed above)
Could somebody offere some suggestions / recommendations on how they have setup there XenServers in UCS for VDI / XenDesktop?

Stretching VLANs using OTV
Both fabrics are advertising BD subnets into same routing domain
Some BDs(or say VLANs) are stretched, but some are not.

VMware Trunk Port Group is supported from ACI version 2.1
