I would like to understand the configuration and the terminology used in VMware:

1-after installing ESX server on the local machine, I will have to assign IP address to Virtual console other than the one assigned to the ESX server during the installation wizard, I will also have to assign an IP to VMKernel. Correct?, if so what's the purpose of assigning IP to service console and VMkernel?

2-is port group the same as VLAN?
3- what's the Virtual machine Datastore?
