Jump to solution

Hello All
Now that VCF 4.2.1 on VxRail supports using static IP pools, still fall under best practice when starting the bringup process and the workload domain deployment?

 

Thanks in advance...

You can use static IP pools, but keep in mind if you ever want to stretch the cluster you need to use DHCP.

Thus would depend on how your network is configured.  The VLAN may need an IP helper of the DHCP server is in a different network.

If I go with DCHP,  what would be the correct process to allow the Host acquire a DCHP allocated ip address?
