Hi list,

Is it possible to have NFS based load balancing and failover enabled storage
without stacking switches? 
Or is this only doable with iSCSI and multipathd?

I'm reading about XenServer and openvswitch, how multiple VMs would be able
to use all physical links using SLB bonds, it works for networking but not
for storage? (As the nfs share is mounted on dom0?)

Using openvswitch with SLB bonding on XEN 4.1 I'm only seeing traffic on 1
interface at a time, using loop or tapdisk.

Is this working as designed - or am I doing something wrong?
