  • 1.  2 NIC - Network different

    Posted Apr 30, 2018 04:42 AM

    Good evening group,

    I'm not very skilled in vmware and I think I'm doing something wrong.

    I have 2 NIC

    1 vmnic0 is to handle the entire LAN theme of 2 virtual machines, this is OK

    1 vmnic1 is to receive a SIP trunk from my operator. Here is the problem.

    I did:

    1. Create a TCP / IP Stacks

    2. Create a Virtua switch

    3. Create a port group

    The problem is that when I create a new machine and I want to add a network of the new port group I do not have it dispobile

    And when I see the network summary on the host, I only get the default vmware

    I appreciate your help to know what I'm doing wrong or what I should do adiconal to be able to use the 3cx network according to the example.

    If it is a VM traffic there is no need for you to create another TCP/IP stack .. the second TCP IP stack can be removed. not required.

    A 2nd TCP IP stack can be used in cases where you want a different gateway for the vmkernel network.. other than the already existing.

    I am not sure if there is any link to the 2nd Switch and the 2nd TCP/IP stack.

    If you could remove the 2nd vSwitch also and recreate..

    from design point you can put all the networks in singly switch with 2 physical nics and use vLANs.. this will give you redundancy

    The additional TCP IP stack was frozen and the rest of the configuration was left the same

    Thanks for your help
