Hi,

Regarding this question:

For multicast, please confirm following steps are correct:

1.      I put vm’s of which I want to monitor a multicast session on the same ESX host and disable DRS for them
2.      I enable promiscuous mode for vswitch as well as port groups of the vm hosts
3.      I start a netmon/wireshark, all traffic should be captured now

Please note this is a production environment, I will leave the settings only enabled for the time of the capture.
It won’t have any further impact, right?

Please advise.
J.

Yes mostly that would be it. Also be aware that all the VM's in this switch can monitor the traffic since the promiscuous mode is on.
