ESX Ip address
Posted on 2016-09-25
When setting up ESXi server, you can specify IP address (Static or through DHCP). on the DUCI
Well, ESX servers usually have many physical Network Adapters , probably(If I am correct) each Network Adapter can be connected to separate physical Switch and separate VLAN.
So how do you know which Network Adapter the IP address of ESXi server is tied to.
I also want to know whether the IP address of ESXi server is the Default Gateway IP ADDRESS for each VMKernel Port, or the Layer 3 IP address (SVI or Router interface) is the Default Gateway for each Vmkernel Port ?
For instance when you create VMkernel port, you specify IP address, Mask and DG.. in this case the DG points to an IP address (SVI on the switch or Interface of the router) OR it points to the IP address of the ESXi server ?
