Multicasting vmware esxi machines?

Hi,

To test multicasting, can we do this on a virtual environment (since multicasting is enabled on physical switches, will it work on the virtual ones WITHOUT any configuration change)?

Thanks, but please check the link before you post it.
It's related to performance, not to my question.

To answer your question No vSwitch does not play any part. If its configured on physical switch it will support it.

I gave you that link because it talks about VMware's support for multicast.
