Vmware vsphere MAC address issue
Posted on 2014-12-05
vSwitch0 has vmnic0 and vmnic9 , not trunck, LCAP or NIC teaming on the physical switch side and vSwitch side.
Standard Switch : vSwitch0
Physical Adaptors : vmnic0 , vmnic9
vmnic0's mac address : xxxxxxx:0c
vmnic9's mac address : xxxxxxx:9f
VMkernel Port -> Management Network -> vmk0 : 10.72.30.240
Management IP : 10.72.30.240
Management MAC : xxxxxxx:0c
If I remove vmnic0 from vSwitch0, the mac address for 10.72.30.240 still remain the same (xxxxx:0c). why MAC address didn't change to xxxxx:9f as we have removed vmnic0 from vSwitch0 already?
