Pfsense, esxi 6, link aggregation
ech1965 last edited by
I'd like to receive advice on my upgrade plans.
- pf on an R210 Dell server ( core i3, igb ram)
- lan & wan on the broad com nics
- vlan trunk (15vlan) on intel ( igb driver) 4 ports connected to the main switch using an LACP link aggregation.
I'd like to virtualize the pfsense ( benefits:snapshots and ease of upgrade). the mid term plans are to replace the 4x1gb with a 1x10gb link. Il seems that people have better perf with the nic driven by esxi
esix 6 ( free)
only 1 vm ( pfsense) dedicated hardware
pfsense lan & esxi management on broadcom 1
wn on broadcom2
?? how should I conect the trunk
lacp ? esxi nic teaming ? no aggregation but split the trunk across the nics ?
I read the https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/PfSense_2_on_VMware_ESXi_5 page but dod not find any info about the link aggegration.
Thanks in advance
