comment iSCSI or network share
The answer is 2. but how do you plan on connecting the ports to your switches and ensuring the load is balanced equally - LACP presumably but you need to clarify, it doesn't just magically happen.

comment “I/O Error Occurred” in vSphere Client 4.1 uploading to datastore
not really, I used 4.1 at the time and copying files into and out of datastore remains an issue even with 5.5 but it's usually one that rebooting your vCenter can fix - I'd try that, or adding a new temporary datastore to see if it's that datastore or any datastore that's the problem. Also try attaching to the host directly copying that way - that's all I can think of right now sorry.

comment Routing between Two Host-Only Networks
The obvious answer would be 'set up routing' but you've not mentioned what type of router you have now do you give the impression of knowing what you're doing - and that's kind of one of our requirements on this site, it's not for learners as we make very clear when you sign up.

comment vSphere/vCenter not offering SSO options
No, sorry, I meant into the vCenter - have you tried the one you're supposed to start with (administrator@vsphere.local)?

comment Oracle: 1 Large Server vs. 2 Smaller Servers?
This site is NOT a discussion forum, we're about answering the questions as asked with facts, not opinions. Also you mean Oracle for Windows and not the other way around, and the asker doesn't mention about running this in VMs so VMWare DRMs are irrelevant in this situation. Please read our help pages before posting again and perhaps take a while to look around the site at what constitutes a valid answer.

comment Network Card with builtin VPN functionality?
Firstly product, service, or learning material recommendations are off topic on serverfault as we make very clear when you sign up. Secondly why on earth would anyone make such a thing? Just use iLO/DRAC, if you need a VPN create it in the router - this model just doesn't make sense.

comment VMware Vsphere Monitoring and Alerting Network Outage
Only just spotted this question - did you try doing this via a host vswitch port alert - that's how ours are setup, not via individual VMs but via the hosts themselves and it works great - actually we use SNMP not mail but they do work.

comment HP MSA 2040 drive not detecting
If you've tried different disks in different slots then I suspect the MSA myself - if you have a model with dual controllers try rebooting them both (not at the same time obviously!) and trying again.

comment HP MSA 2040 drive not detecting
The 1.2TB disks need to be on firmware HPD6 or later and the 300's need to be on HPD3 or later - can you check what versions they are - also I know you've tried different disks but what about slots?

comment HP MSA 2040 drive not detecting
What EXACTLY have you got - i.e. part numbers and SW version on the MSA - there is no such thing as a 1TB 10Krpm disk for this box, we need to know the details

comment HP Officejet Pro X476dw with Windows Server 2012 R2 - Manual Feed Paper Size / Type Prompt
I have exactly the same printer at home and my daughter uses Tray 1 for printing photos - this isn't via W2012 of course but she chooses regular A4 - not the preprinted version/type - have you tried that as it works for her.
