Creating DMZ on Vswitch Esxi

hi guys,

There's a server that's been virtualised and has to be set up in the same way as the physical instance of it before turning it off.

The physical instance is on the 192.168.40.0/24 range and is connected to one of our switches (no VLAN) to which there is a connection to one of our firewall ports.

I've had the server virtualised. Now, I'd like to have it set up in the same way by creating the DMZ on the Vswitch. I've done some of it, but don't know how to:

1.  Add the IP ranges for the DMZ created (snapshot).
2. What port on the Esxi host I have to connect to our switch to get the Vmnic2 up?

Thanks
Yash

You connect a network cable from VMNIC2 on your ESXi host  to your firewall ports on your physical switch.

You mean either the firewall ports or the physical switch?

connect VMNIC2 on the ESXi Host Server to the physical ports on the switch, which is your DMZ
