Cold migration of guests, ServiceConsole or VMKernel port?

When a cold migration of a guest (ESX 3) is performed, does it use the ServiceConsole port or the VMKernel port, in the following 2 scenarios:

1. The ESX servers share same storage (SAN)

2. The ESX servers used separate storage volumes (SAN or LOCAL).

Thanks..

Ryan.

I believe it's the service console connection.

It's over the service console NIC. It was tested in this thread: http://www.vmware.com/community/thread.jspa?messageID=617191&#617191
