VMWARE vDS can I set up a VmKernal interface with an IP just for a test

can I create a vDS and a single uplink to a physical port.

then create a VMkernal port with a temporary IP

and not check any of the boxes to use for Vmotion or management or anything  and then PING this temporary IP to check connectivity ??


in other words can I create a VM kernal port just for testing connectivity ?>

Should be possible. As once you assign an IP it works. You don't have to enable any features and the IP is bound to the Kernel post like vmk0 or vmk1

Yes, of course it's possible, just add a VDS.
