Can someone in detail explain how to do a Server 2008 R2 heartbeat for a Cluster in VMware?
It is a 2 node setup and on different hosts.

I already have 2 nics on each VM, Production and Heartbeat labeled.
I moved the prod above heartbeat in the adapters and bindings.

do we need a private Vswitch or vlan between the 2 nodes? can we add more heart beats on the same vlan? i don't know much about networking.
