  • 1.  build dhcp in exsi server for vms on it

    Hi all,

    I have a server running ESXI 7, which has a public ip address. Can I build a DHCP service on it,  so that all VMS hosted on it can get an IP address? Since I don't have more public IP addresses for them.  If I can how to do it? If I can't, is there any other way to solve this situation to make all VMs on this server can visit the Internet?

    With ESXi, this is not possible. But if you use VMware Workstation it is. That product has a built-in DHCP server.

    The same as you would on any other system/network, build a VM to run an OS which offers a DHCP service.

    Using a public address on an ESXi host isn't the hottest idea ever, hopefully it's protected by some form of security system/device...
