Lab Configuration of Multiple Subnet NFS Storage Traffic [Video]

Building upon an earlier deep dive post on running NFS on vSphere (part 3), this video goes over a few configuration pieces to successfully setting up multiple subnet storage traffic.

The following scenarios are reviewed:

  • The use of a single VMkernel port for NFS with multiple physical uplinks
  • Identifying and resolving routed NFS to a secondary subnet
  • Correcting a sub-optimal teaming policy
  • Details on using the ESXi routing table and traceroute to determine if NFS traffic is routed
  • ESXTOP review of vmnic selection
