    Along with your ISCSI traffic being on a separate p-network or vlan. vMotion traffic should also be separated at least onto another vlan as the VM being vMotioned transfers its memory in plaintext across the vmotion network.

    You can insert rootkits in vmotioning VMs, in turn these can effect VMs on the new box the infected VM can move to.

    ESX eats network cards. The more the better.

    Just thought it was odd, as i didnt have to with v3.5...
    Anyway, found the licence stuff on their website, bit of a sod to find! lol.

    So, for virtualising a few of our lighter servers (IIS, Print, AV, ect; ) + some test beds, will the following suffice?
    Think i already know the answer:

    2x Quad Core Xeon E5410 @2.33Ghz
    32Gb RAM
    2x PCI-E teamed Gig (VM Network, VMKernal, Service Console)
    1x PCI-E Gig NIC (un-used at the moment)
    137Gb internal SAS
    100Gb iSCSi target
    300Gb iSCSI target


    If it turns out to be successful, i think i'll look into converting our spare blade into an ESXi server as well and look into ways to cluster it all for failover.
