Best Practices for VMware vSphere 5.1 using vDS for iSCSI traffic

I've read through the VMware vSphere 5 on Nimble Storage Best Practices guide for configuring VMware standard vSwitches, but we've recently migrated all our networking to Virtual Distributed Switches (vDS) and I'd like to use them for iSCSI traffic as well. I'm wondering if anyone has recommendations for configuring the vDS uplinks, port groups etc. We're running Cisco UCS B-series blades, two VLANs for iSCSI traffic, and configured the port groups to only use one vmnic to keep iSCSI traffic for each VLAN on separate FI's.

 

Thanks,

 

Jacob
