Is it possible to setup an internal switch to a ESX Cluster?
What I want is the traffic be completely inaccessible from the main network. However only machines attached to the virtual switch (a switch with no physical uplinks) can communicate with each other.
I tried creating a switch on each of my hosts in the cluster and gave them the same name, however there is no communication from a VM on one host to a VM connected on another host.
What is the correct procedure for creating such a private network?
How would this traffic transverse the LAN to other hosts connected to the virtual switch, via the serivice console?
