HP NIC Teaming, HyperV, NIC Teaming, NLB, Windows 2008 Server
As we get ready to roll this out live I rebuilt the Host servers and had no trouble with Blade1 and the networking and the switches probably because a was there when I did this. So OK I got Blade1 going and the Virtual Servers redid and ready for the live prime time. No biggie I will just redo Blade2 and set things up like the other one. Things was going fine until I got to the point of getting the SAN NICs in the Vlan and trunked. Things was fine but I didn’t realize one little detail. When you trunk your NIC’s in the switch that is what you see the trunk name not the Ports. I fought this and fought this not realizing what was going on and finally had to have Jason come back just to tell me oh yea you got to Pick the Trunk name and add that to the Vlan. Duh!!! Ok see previous post and the line about “KISS” Keep it Simple Stupid.
Til later just Roger
