Although I have worked with VMWare for a few years now, unfortunately I have not setup a VMWare environment from scratch. Nor have I had any formal training, but here I find myself managing a small environment of different systems. We have version 5.0. 5.5, and 6.0 hosts. We have some SAN's, some local storage, the servers are on different LAN's, it's a real hodge podge. I have a vcenter 5 essentials and a vcenter 6 standard. It's about 20 hosts and 2 vcenters in total. I am trying to get this all organized. So far I have upgraded a lot of the 5.0 servers to 5.5, but the limitations of storage and this being an active network have me a little stuck.
One of my major concerns is that there is no HA network setup. I would like to be able to migrate servers in vcenter, but cannot. Is there some clear documentation on how to set this up? I know I need a separate LAN to keep traffic off of my main network. So I have a couple of switches and i am starting to get that setup, but I am unsure how to setup the nic's in vmware for this. Any instruction would be appreciated! Thank you in advance.
Please go through the below pages to get more information about vCenter high availability and supported High Availability Options for different vcenter versions.
