You add another VMKernel Network Management Portgroup to the vSwitch, and then add an IP Address.

Only a single IP Address per VMKernel.

Do you need two management network IP Addresses ?

thanks that looks right , I can see if I add it using a Kernal adapter I can give it an IP


I am not sure exactly what this is going to be used for
but I will set ip up as a kernal for vMotion

Yes, would usually use a different, network interface IP Address subnet for vMotion.
