Vmware - create vswitch for vmotion with different default gateway
Posted on 2014-11-30
Hi guys, I need some help around vmware and vswitches, in particular, creating a vswitch to be used for vmotion.
I already have a vswitch for the management network which has 2 NICs attached, and has an IP of 192.168.7.45.
What I need to do is create another vswitch for vmotion, however, the IP subnet is different to the management subnet. When I go through the process, select the NICs and then enter the IP, which is 192.168.30.77, I need to change the gateway so it's 192.168.30.1. It defaults to 192.168.7.1 and it lets me change it but gives a warning that changing may cause the host to disconnect. I tried changing it anyway and it popped up an error while it tried applying the settings and reverted the gateway back to the default (192.168.7.1).
What do I need to do so that the gateway is 192.168.30.1?
