Note: For fully converged deployments, the management VLAN must be assigned to the switch ports as the access VLAN.
Dell Technologies recommends the following network configurations for management, storage, and compute/VM traffic when creating clusters using Windows Admin Center:
Table 1. Recommended network configurations
|Management1 SET + Compute SET + Physical Storage ||6 ||2 |
|Management SET + Storage2 SET + Compute SET ||6 ||3 |
|Management SET + Storage & Compute3 SET ||4 ||2 |
Table 2. Data Center Bridging (DCB) settings
|Mellanox (RoCE)/Intel E810 (iWARP) ||DCB (required) ||DCB (required for storage adapters only) |
|QLogic (iWARP) ||DCB (required for All-NVMe configurations only) ||No DCB |

Note: You can only achieve Management SET with two physical network adapters ports.
Note: Dell Technologies recommends that you use more than a single physical adapter port for management.
