My VMware hosts have 4 - 10gig NIC's, plugged into two different switches. Two of them are in a LACP/VPC (Nexus) Team and the ports on the switch are trunk ports so I can tag my vmguest networks. This team is used for Host/Guest LAN traffic. The other 2 - 10gig NIC's are for iSCSI on a separate VLAN, Flow control on, no teaming, separate vSwitches per Nimble best practice. Please see attached image. All of that works great, no issues.
If I wanted to do in VM/Guest iSCSI could I add Virtual Machine Port Group on the iSCSI vSwitches? Call them "Guest iSCSI_1 and _2".
Is that supported, good, bad.....ugly??? Or should I add more NIC's to the hosts and use those for iSCSI? The hosts have some 1gig ports not in use but I would have to add a 1gig switch layer to the iSCSI VLAN and cable it all up. Something I would like to avoid if I could.
Thanks for any help!
