Sharing an iSCSI network between the host and a guest

At one of our customers site we’ve deployed a Hyper-V cluster (HP Proliant BL460c G7 servers) with two HP (LeftHand) P4000 SAN systems (spread over two locations). We’re using iSCSI for SAN connections. Network adapters are configured through HP VirtualConnect. Each server has 8 NICs (4 from LOM1 and 4 from LOM2):

  • 2 adapters in a team for the CSV nework
  • 2 adapters in a team for the virtual machine network
  • 2 adapters for iSCSI connections (teamed through MPIO)
