Posted September 22, Hi David, As a point of reference, this machine running Centos 5. The Windows server has 2 nics, connected to 2 switches. Thanks for reply Paul! If anything, host network should be more I also put one VM Guest on each VM host 3 total and ran benchmarks, running all three there is a noticeable decrease in performance leading me to believe it may be the MDi.

Anyone got any ideas?

One might not do that beforehand, but running Host install from Resource CD for MDi does in fact install this feature anyway. Thank you for reading, I welcome your comments. Gavin, Could you confirm whether you’re bonding the NICs, and if so, whether all four are in the bond, or two bonds of two? This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.

Hi Gavin In my case I contacted Citrix, and they told us that we don’t have support on the storage, even though we have Preferred Xenserver Extend contract, so your mileage may vary.
The MDi has 2 controllers, each controller has 2 nics. E-mail me on firstname.

I put that in place using this link; http: I have the same scenario, but for file server. Post was not sent – check your email addresses! Repeat mmpio step for the remaining addresses.

This is a redundant design. In my case, there is already a Hostgroup available, to provide access to the VMware vSphere servers. I have found the Mpii to work a little bit slower and have heard the same response on the forum. Hi Bryan Yeah we’re planning on deploying this for some high throughput boxes so want to test throughput before we go live.
The Windows server has 2 nics, connected to 2 switches. In this post, I will step through the process for Windows R2. A recent version can be found here. You are commenting using your WordPress. Veeam Backup and Replication is entirely based on dwll backup, but one of the customer requirements was to also have data on tape.
If anything, host network should be more I also put one VM Guest md0300i each VM host 3 mr3000i and ran benchmarks, running all three there is a noticeable decrease in performance leading me to believe it may be the MDi. Hi Bryan, I have enabled jumbo frames but it only made a marginal difference speaking to one of the other admins here it actually slowed things down a tad. The other 4 are running unbonded and are directly connected at 1gb full duplex to the storage array.
So if we are running 2X1Gb connections to the one MDi controller we will only see 1Gb performance?
Can you check your MD and see if the same is happening? What are you using for benchmarks? Recently, I was working on a backup solution for a VMware vSphere environment.
