Hello,

have you guys ever configure a 4 SFP + Nutanix cluster with AHV? i understand that the 4 SFP + will be configured as active-passive in a same bond... but only 1 SFP should be used.

 

There is a better way to configure network on AHV to improve and use the other SFP+??? i mean, for example, separate the traffic between user VMs and CVM (storage traffic)

Hi @Pablo Alejandro so you mean 4 10-Gig separate  SFP+ modules connected to single host?

In-order to separate traffic between VMs and CVMs you can pin CVMs on br0 using 2-10GbE pNICs and UVMs on br1 using 2-10GbE pNICs.

 

Here is the AHV networking guide
