i have a question and this audience is probably going to give me the best answers. is there any merit in using a dvswitch for iscsi?

i can think of some easeness in deployment and standardization, but here's my current dilemma:

I normally choose a dvswitch to enable load balancing based on physical nic load. this works great for VM and normal vmk traffic, but in scsi, you set specific active uplinks, and set the rest to unused.

would i be right in saying you gain nothing (load-balancing wise) when using iscsi in a dvswitch?

thanks for your time :D
