Dusty ol’ Pro/1000 VT

So in an effort to increase throughput on my ESXi hosts I’ve picked up a few of these Intel Pro/1000 VT quad port adapters.  I am going to throw them in my desktop temporarily to make sure that they work and install properly, but I noticed something funny on this adapter:

Something tells me port #3 wasn’t used very much – LOL

So, here’s hoping it works!  I will give an update once I have them installed and cabled up.  I’ll be using one port from this adapter and one integrated port on the servers for the data network, then the remaining integrated port for iSCSI, and the remaining 3 ports on the Pro/1000 for iSCSI as well.  Should work out reasonably!
