I am using the 1000v switches with our vsphere deployment. I have a standalone esx host and I'm trying to setup private vlans but ran into a question. these VMs have 2 NICs that are just needed for inter system traffic. We basically configure some IP addresses on the seperate NICs to be used by network applications running on the same VMs.
vNIC will need to be connected and on. Traffic doesn't need to traverse to a default gateway and should not even need to traverse past the 1000v. If I have 2 hosts in the same port-group I do not want them to be able to talk to each other as we will be cloning the VM and will use the same exact IP addresses. vMotion needs to work.
What's the port-profile configuration I'd need for this? As I do not need external access?
