Assigning IP address to Vmotion Vmkernel port
Posted on 2016-10-19
I have seen scenarios when they create Vmkernel port, for instance, for Vmotion. They assign IP address to Vmkernel port. I would like to know if there is any requirement for that IP address. I mean does it have to be in a specific subnet that should match another specific subnets on the physical switch?
In other words based on what requirement they assign the IP address ?
I have also seen the same thing when they create Vmkernel for storage..
Any clarification, will be very much appreciated.
