Hi Experts,

We are working on configuring Vmotion on our 2 esxi hosts.

1) We have shared storage dell 3400SAS and have created a LUN that is available to both hosts under storage.
2) We have installed VCenter 6.0
3) Our 2 esxi hosts have 4 nic cards per host. One esxi host has an additional vswitch with a VLAN for VOIP. From previous posts answered i know that it is recommended to have a separate network and VLAN for VMotion.

How can i configure the new VLAN for VMotion when i only have 4 physical nics and they are all being used(2 for data and 2 for VOIP)?

I am not sure if it is possible to create a new vswitch and use the same nics that are already being used? Or can I use 2 out of the 4 nics, create a new vswitch, create new VLAN, tag the traffic for VMotion?

Thank you
