VM machines communication
Posted on 2014-03-17
In most environments , VMs are store in a SAN.
so in Vsphere client if we go to Networking, we'll see a virtual switch with 1 or more physical NICs and VM port group, the physical NICs of the Virtual Switch , if I understand are the ones plugged to ESX host…correct?
so if VM1 wants to talk to VM2 , while both are in the SAN, would VM1 will go out of the SAN NIC then through physical NIC on ESX host then come back through that physical NIC to the SAN NIC in order to talk to VM2 which is in fact in the same SAN as VM1 ?
Any explanation will be very much appreciated.
