    Only if you add 2 vmnics to your VM, one of the vmk port group and another on the "data" port group

    As long as you have vMotion configured on your hosts and the hosts your moving VMs between are compatible then it will work. You do not need a vMotion vmnic on each VM

    i see that every vm will have only an vmnic and vmkernel is used on host by vmostion or iscsi,nfs -there is no need of other vmnic in vm.right?

    i think that nic bonding is better to have on physical nics on host rather in every vm.right?
