Which NIC will ESXI host use when joining AD?

I have a Domain Controller on ESXI host and I want ESXI to join the AD? Do I need to create a vmkernel for the goal?

Hi welcome to the communities,

it will use the management network, which uses vmk0 as default, no need to create a new vmkernel.

So look up which vmnic is connected to vmk0 in your installation.

Hello,

Everything depends on the network infrastructure that have assembled in the company.

If you have 2 types of networks one for service and other network servers for backup, you must put the service VLANs where the AD.
