There is no such functionality in vSphere which would trigger VMotion when VM loses network connectivity. vSphere can restart VMs on other hosts if ESXi host fails, but loss of network connectivity to VMs is obviously not considered as a host failure.

What scenario are you trying to test? Because if you have redundant uplinks on a vSwitch, both uplinks failing at the same time is very rare and would almost never happen.
