Running ESXi Essentials plus 5.5, 3 hosts in datacenter/cluster - customer wants a VM with a Modem attached to call out. The VM will be in a HA cluster. what is the best option here? A modem that you connect to via Ethernet?
if you need the machine that is hosting the modem to be able to move across the cluster you will have to implement this or a similar solution. you can however, if the client is happy for the lost of DRS and vMotion capability for the particular machine just host the modem in the local hosts comport and directly map it.
