Configuring 2 SVIs with the same IP Addresses in 2 Separate Switches.
Just want to verify if this is doable:
let's say we have ESX host with Network adapters teamed up, and each Network adapter is connected to separate switch (same Vlans) , on each Switch the SVI (Switch Virtual IP address) is the default gateway for ESX Host using the teamed NICs.
ESX Host 1 has NIC1 and NIC2 teamed up with IP address : 192.168.12.80
NIC1 is physically connect to Switch 1 and NIC2 is connected to Switch2
on Switch1 we configure SVI with IP address 192.168.12.81 and on Switch2 we configure SVI with same IP address 192.168.12.81
ESX Host Default Gateway : 192.168.12.81
we have to give 2 different IP addresses for each SVI? for instance
Switch1 SVI: 192.168.12.81
Switch2 SVI : 192.168.12.82
in this case what would be the ESX Host default Gateway ?
