We are using Backup Exec 16 for backing up couple of physical servers and approx 60 VMs running on vmware esxi 6.0.
Backup server itself is running on physical box Windows 2012 R2 and has got 2x 10 gbps NICs. All my ESXi hosts have 1x 10 gbps active NIC and 1x 10 gbps in standby mode. Im trying to setup the best scenario from networks point of view. Both NICs from backup are connected to HP Procurve 5400zl core spanning tree root bridge also all active NICs of all my ESXi hosts. On the Backup server side I enabled NIC teaming and here im confused which teaming mode (static,switch independent, LACP) and load balancing mode (address hash, hyper-v port,dynamic) should I use in order to get best network performance.
Here is a simple drawing:
Backup server NIC teaming - Static teaming mode with Dynamic load balancing mode.
On my procurve switch I did this config:
trunk E1,E7 trk3 trunk
I will appreciate any suggestion of how to improve my backup server load balancing and its performance.
