Currently we have VLAN 11 10.150.11.0 assigned for infrastructure / management of vmware cluster, vranger(backup) and switches.

Should following be technically possible:

extra vm network VLAN11 on same vswitch as infrastructure
extra VM with three NICS one production, one test and one infrastructure.

We are having issues with connectivity and I wonder If this is a problem. Sometimes we get ping reply with that vm and sometime long time no reply.

background:

We have vpn with customer allowing us only vlan 11. We made workaround to be able to connect with RDP to production and test network with VM with three NICS which can reach all networks. We need RDP access on the test and production VM's without physically being there.

It is not good practice, but you can connect VMs to any network you like.
