I'm trying to accomplish a task in my lab where a number of VM's cannot communicate with each other but can talk to a group of servers and access the internet.
Currently I have 2 physical servers running ESXI 5 with Vsphere essentials (Standard vswitch).
I'm curious to see if anyone has some ideas how to accomplish this without doing the following:
1: Dedicating physical nics to VM's
2: Purchasing a license to support Vmware Distributed Switch
The firewall I have available is a Sonicwall NSA2400 and I have a Dell Powerconnect managed switch.
Each physical server has 4 available nic ports.
I've attached a PDF to show a basic example of what I'm trying to accomplish.
