I am standing up a new file server and I need to connect it to my iSCSI SAN and I am looking for a good NIC to use for dedicated iSCSI with multi-pathing. What should I be looking for in a good dual-NIC card to dedicate to iSCSI?
Here is what I have so far in my list:
- adjust MTU beyond defaults
- hardware offloads for iSCSI tagged traffic
- must be GigE
Are there things I should avoid?
