vmware management network
Posted on 2013-01-21
Currently I am in a process of separating the network flow for IBM blade chassisse(Vmware servers- ESXi 4.1). Currently I have two LAN switches where all data goes(production VLAN, Vmotion,management,FT).
I bought additional two LAN switches and I start migration of the vMotion and FT traffic. I was wondering about VMWare management network. Do I have to move it to the new lan switches as I did with vMotion and FT and what will be the benefit. According to the several pictures which I found with google it seems that most of the people are dividing it.
Actually management network consumes very little bandwidth, also my production network is not very loaded.
