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
