I currently have my 3 xen servers setup to use bonding and vlan trunking over all the available network cards in each server. Two of the three machines have 4 nics where the other has 2. Each are set to use lacp channel-protocol if that matters. What I am trying to accomplish is accessing my iSCSI san (dell md3200i) without having to drop out half of my nics from the bond. Should this be possible? The san is setup to use vlan20 where all other traffic is on vlan2-vlan17. Has anyone done this successfully or do I just need to drop out half of the nics and be done with it?
