Esxi host NIC Configuration question
Posted on 2013-01-17
I have a ESXi with 4 NIC's on it (Test Environment). I have configured vmnic0 for our ESXi Management netwtork and I have assgied an IP address to it from ESXi console.
Now my question is ,
Rest of the 3 Adaptors have not been assigned any IP Address (They are Enabled). Do I need to assign an IP Address to them in order to use them for my vSwitches.
Because I see , I have a physical adaptor vmnic1 which is been assigned to my vSwtich1 .
Now the VM's in vSwtich1 are not able to ping and communicate with outside world.
