  • Lab Creation Question

    So I've got two physical servers and want to put ESX3.5i on both. I'd like to then setup a couple of Windows machines in a domain (say...2 on each).

    Of course, I need to separate these VMs from the production environment.

    So the question is, with ESX, how can I separate the VMs from production, but make them visible to each other (over 2 physical machines)?

    If your server has two network cards (which it should) then you can use one NIC to connect to your LAN for Management and the other connected with a cross-over cable to the second server

    Add the VM's to the portgroup that will be on the second NIC

    They will be able to talk to each other
