  • 1.  ESX and two vmkernels

    Posted Aug 31, 2023 05:07 AM


    I have one clustre biuld from three hosts and there is vCenter, i have configured vDS (on vswitch with many PGs - each for VLAN) , and each host have two vmkerenel one for management in VLAN X, and second for NFS connections in VLAN Y, and my laptop is in VLAN Z.

    I can ping from my laptop in VLAN Z all vmks on all hosts in this cluster.


    But I installed new standalone host (this host is not part of the cluster) , I configured standard vswitch and the same vmks (one in VLAN X, second in VLAN Y) but from my laptop i can ping only vmk from VLAN X. Both vmks use Default stack with gateway from VLAN X, but in above cluster is the same and it's working. 

    Is it some limitation in normal vSwitch , or i miss something in configuration ??
