I have a new hypervisor with (2) quad port 10GbE network cards.
I wanted to configure the server for network card redundancy by adding a vmnic from each physical card into a standard switch; that way if one physical NIC fails it will not take down the vmware virtual switch. I hope that makes sense.
The two physical cards in question are Intel X710 (i40en) and X550 (ixgben).
Would this cause potential issues? The network cards are being used for VM networking, they are not used for storage as that is separate over FC links.
Or would I be better off using two vmnics from the same physical adapter and avoid mixing?
