2 NIC - Network different

Jump to solution

Good evening group,

I'm not very skilled in vmware and I think I'm doing something wrong.

I have 2 NIC

1 vmnic0 is to handle the entire LAN theme of 2 virtual machines, this is OK

1 vmnic1 is to receive a SIP trunk from my operator. Here is the problem.

I did:

1. Create a TCP / IP Stacks

2. Create a Virtua switch

3. Create a port group

The problem is that when I create a new machine and I want to add a network of the new port group I do not have it dispobile

And when I see the network summary on the host, I only get the default vmware

I appreciate your help to know what I'm doing wrong or what I should do adiconal to be able to use the 3cx network according to the example.

If it is a VM traffic there is no need for you to create another TCP/IP stack .. the second TCP IP stack can be removed. not required.

A 2nd TCP IP stack can be used in cases where you want a different gateway for the vmkernel network.. other than the already existing.

I am not sure if there is any link to the 2nd Switch and the 2nd TCP/IP stack.

If you could remove the 2nd vSwitch also and recreate..

from design point you can put all the networks in singly switch with 2 physical nics and use vLANs.. this will give you redundancy

The additional TCP IP stack was frozen and the rest of the configuration was left the same
