  • quick networking esx3.5 questions

    Hi all,
    I am in the process of configuring my networking on my first esx3.5 host - Can this be done by the VI client?. or do I need the service console?

    Also, I know the Service Console, VMotion, and VMkernel - all require unique IP addresses - are these physical address (so to speak) from the outside network or are they allocated within a Vswitch?. i am presume physical addresses?

    Thanks so much for your help.

    You can so it with the VI client (easier) or you can do it from the ESX console (custom linux commands)
    Yes these will have to valid IP Adresses that will need to be on your relevant subnets
