ESX and VM Vlan question
Posted on 2010-08-27
We are running ESX on an R710 with 4 nic ports and two virtual servers within it.
We want to asign one server to VLAN 1 and another to VLAN 2 on the actuall switch. Only problem is their is room for 1 VLAN only because all our NICs are already being used. Here is the brerakdown.
vmNIC 0 is for the management port (1 physical nic)
vmNIC 1 is for the virtual machines (1 physical nic)
vmNIC 2&3 is for the iSCSI Network (2 physical nics)
So you can see we have no more physical nics left to assing one of these virtual machines to a different VLAN
Any ideas? I created a virtual switch but we obviously have no physical nics to attach to it. When I tried adding the existing virtual machien nic to it, it warned me that the VMs will be moved to it. A little confusing but how will I get this other server on a different VLAN?
