I would like to ask you guys for help/hint/recommendation regarding 4-port NIC configuration prior to installing Hyper-V role on my HP DL380 server.
I have 2 boxes on the network:
- DC: Server 2012 Standard (AD,DNS,DHCP)
- Hyper-V host Server 2012 Standard (DL380), joined to the domain.
This Hyper-V host has 4-port NIC. My goal is to host 2 virtual machines: another domain controller and Exchange 2013 Standard for 40 users. All files related to virtual machines will be stored on RAID5 local drive, there is no iSCSI SAN nor DAS, therefore I believe I don't need to use NICs for iSCSI. I'm also not sure of using NIC for Live Migration etc. as this should remain standalone Hyper-V server (no cluster).
What is your recommendation for using 4 NICs (4x1 Gb ports) with Hyper-V STANDALONE server (not cluster) ?
Should I take in consideration NIC Teaming? (better performance?)
