    ESXi 5.5 - connect three servers without the switch for vSAN

    malefik Enthusiast

      Hello colleagues.


      Given: three servers, each of them with two network cards 10G. All NIC are connected one-to-another through a special cable for direct connection, i.e. topology is a "ring".

      Needed: set up so that all three servers have seen each other, and in case of a fall of any of them, the remaining went to see a fellow. Now if only on each server to create a vSwitch, assign a corresponding address (well, for example, mask, gateway and add the network card 10G, the scheme is not running, the servers can not see each other.


      Share your experience: how to set up such a scheme?
