May work with a FAS2240A, 2 x 2960S vm traffic, 2 x 2960S iSCSI ip storage, x 3 servers (2 x nic vmnetworking, 2x nic iSCSI storage, vmware
I plan to use 1 controller for block based traffic only and this is based around iSCSI ip storage mainly
Below is my understanding and questions, appreciate inputs on current understanding and possible options depending on types of switch functionality
Note the 2960S supports flex stack (not sure I can get this, keeping config options open)

Did you ever get a good answer or resolve this? I'm having similar stumbling blocks.
In the Best Practices guide, I see samples for NFS or ISCSI, but not really one that covers both. I'm looking to run NFS for primary vSphere storage, may or may not need ISCSI for LUN's, but will need to pass through ISCSI access to/from the guests to the filer. It looks like I can use a single EtherChannel config from the host to switch to storage to aggregate my bandwidth, and possibly provide a VM port group to the VM the same way to give it access to the same iSCSI target on the filer.
