  • IP Scheme for Virtual Lab

    My company uses 192.168.10.0 as the IP scheme. After reading Petri's "How to create a Network test lab with VMWare" article, I was wondering if I can assign the same IP scheme to my test lab as the production network and be able to isolate the virtual network from my production environment.

    What virtualization product are you using in your network ?

    If you want to isolate a physical VLAN from a virtual VLAN simply add a virtual switch and connect the VM to the virtual switch. Do not bind the virtual switch to any physical network cards.

      I will be using VMWare Server (Free). How is a Virtual Switch added?

        Yes of course. Simply use VMNET1 (the default host-only VMNET) or create a new host-only VMNET with no outbound physical VMNIC to your production network.
