Just wondering if anyone has a few working example configurations of ESXi setups on the networking portions of ESXi and the VM.

My own planned setup is:
1. 8x 1Gb physical NICs.

  • 1x dedicated to ESXi console/management interface.
  • 1x dedicated to WAN connection for Kerio Control.
  • 6x dedicated to internal connections using Kerio Control as DHCP, DNS, and routing.

2. Win Server 2008 VM connected to Kerio Control VM via virtual adapter (access to LAN and WAN will be dictated by Kerio Control).

3. Random other Windows VMs that won't remain active outside of testing connected to Kerio Control VM via virtual adapter (access to LAN and WAN will be dictated by Kerio Control)

So yeah, that's the planned setup. I'm just looking to see what others have done with their setups and how they've configured them to get an idea of what I should be doing.

Hi John,
You use 8x a phys NIC and i presume you have also 8 VM nic's.
We have on one 19" three phys NIC (one management/own LAN, two WAN) and 8 VM NIC's running
The other five VM nic are interconnected with the Control and runs smooth. This is one of many we control.
We are an SMB solution provider and a lot of our customers have ESXi servers running with Control on it.

What you want is almost the same and it will work. The configuring will be custom made, because every setup can have different tasks.
If you have an drawing of your network idea, the configuration (firewall rules) are easy to make.
We use alway an white board to draw the network and make the interconnections. That's how we create our rules.
It always starts with a network drawing (can also with MS-Visio).

If you still have trouble to figure it out and you have a drawing, we are glad to help you.
But to give at this moment configurations will not be so easy.
