VC 2.5 ESX 3.5
If I have two VMkernel ports on the same ESX host, but on separate switches and on separate subnets (i.e. one on 192.168.161.x and one on 10.1.161.x), as I understand it I can only have one default gateway address. So for example, both the VMkernel ports I gave in my example may both have the defdault gateway 192.168.161.254. Is this correct?
What if I am accessing two NFS storage servers on each of those VMkernel ports that are on different subnets? Will only one VMkernel port reach the NFS storage, i.e. the one on the 192.168.161.x subnet? Do I have to add a static route to the ESX host for 10.1.161.x traffic to be routed out the 192.168.161.254 gateway?

192.168.161.254. Is this correct? No need to assign same gateway in 10.1.16.x
Vmkernel Switch port connected to 192.168.16.x network will have access to NAS server in 192.168.16.x subnet
Vmkernel Switch port connected to 10.1.16.x network will have access to NAS server in 10.1.16.x subnet
So esx can be able to access both NAS servers from diffrent subnets
In case of shared storage then routing need to done between the subnets
If you have network setup with gateway address then ok otherwise no need
