    Good video Tim!

    You did a good job of covering the setup of vSAN.

    One question though. Any particular reason the configuration has 4 vSAN tagged interfaces? Maybe a follow up video with more content there would be a good addition. I’ll reference John Nicholson’s blog post (https://blogs.vmware.com/virtualblocks/2017/01/18/designing-vsan-networks-using-multiple-interfaces/) for more guidance.

    Keep up the good work!

      Thanks Jase!

      In my lab, my switches can’t do LAG. So, I went with multiple VSAN VMKs (on sep subnets). Documentation shows supported, although my understanding is not recommended is LAG is available. It’s worked out quite well, utilizing the multiple VMKs and allowing me to go well above 1gb/s when testing resyncs, etc. I agree with a follow up video, I’ll put that on my list! Thanks again!
