This is a follow up design question. Basically I have inherited a pretty funky ESX environment that I want to at least get in line with best practices. The biggest issue I see is that there are no VLANS assigned but ESX nics are physically separated by nic port to an associated switch for that particular segment. .
So a few vms that connect to the 192.168.10.x segment are in a vm port group on a vswitch and the nic connects to a switch that is solely 192.168.10.x
There are other vms that connect to a 192.168.100.x segment the same way. We have 6 nics to work with so I at least wanted to set up service console and vmotion on on v switch with 2 nics assigned and utilize the other nics as well.
What can I do design wise given the fact that there are no VLANS in place and the nics I mentioned connect physically to different switches? I know vmotion would ride over the SC port in the even tit happened but I am stuck as to the best way to clean this up a bit.
I attached a sample of what is current and what I want to do minus the VLANS of course.
