HPE ProLiant Best Practices • Perform physical server hardware configuration using iLO. • Perform day-to-day server management using Prism and the hypervisor interface. • Use iLO for hardware-specific management and monitoring for items such as fan speed, temperature, and detailed hardware logs. Networking • Connect two NIC ports to two separate ToR switches for fault tolerance. • Use a leaf-spine network that provides a line-rate, nonblocking connection between all Nutanix nodes. • Configure ToR switches as edge or server ports using a configuration similar to that demonstrated in KB 2455. • Configure ToR switch ports to carry the CVM and hypervisor VLAN as untagged, or native. • Connect the iLO interface for OOB management access using iLO. • Use a dedicated OOB management network if possible. ⁃ This management network must connect to the primary data network for Foundation to work properly.
