Adding additional NICs to Storage Sync for VMware

We have moved from physical Netgear ReadyNAS boxes to the Storage Sync VMs on VMware Hosts. It makes for simplicity and flexibility, but I miss the option for NIC Team (LAG) for increased speeds. I've added additional VMnics and network adapters through vSphere but they don't show up under Device Settings on the Web UI for the Storage Sync. Any way get these to show up? Would love to have faster than 1Gbps speeds by pair in more NICs.

Re: Adding additional NICs to Storage Sync for VMware

@AFH_IT We have seen some customers have trunked their network interfaces for increased bandwidth and have successfully had Storage Sync take advantage of the increased bandwidth.

However, there have been issues where this configuration had adversely affected performance. This does not give you a win - win situation. Also in case of any issues there will never be approximate results from any tests due to the configuration you would have versus the one we recommend.

This is not an area that has been officially supported by our engineering team and we have not qualified this configuration. 

Thanks.
