Customer has a 2 x UCS-C210M2-VCD2. Each server has 6 ethernet ports available for network use (1 for Cisco UCS C-Series Integrated Management Controller).
I'm installing at this stage UCCX 8.5, & Unity Connection 8.0 on one server & UCCX 8.5 on the other server. I'll add more supported UC virtual machines later in the project.
Is there any guidelines/best practices from Cisco on how these 6 ethernet ports should be used (i.e 3 ports for 1 etherchannel connected 1 physical switch & 3 for another etherchannel to a 2nd physical switch for redundancy?).
Many thanks, Michael
The UCS-C210M2-VCD2 has the following split for ethernet ports -
Three motherboard built-in Ethernet ports (2 for network and 1 for Cisco UCS C-Series Integrated Management Controller) and Four additional Ethernet ports (all for network).
So you have 6 ethernet ports for the network.
Check here for guidance on how to setup the network ports when runnign more than one VM on the server -
