I have a VM Palo Alto firewall and installed in the ESXi host and it connect to the standard virtual switch0.
I created two network cards in the VM firewall NIC1 and NIC2.
I created two port groups name Port Group 1 and Port Group 2 in a standard vswitch0.
Then I assign the VM firewall NIC1 to port group 1 and NIC2 to port group 2.
My questions is why there were two firewall mac address show up in the port group 1 and port group 2?
Shouldn't be NIC1 mac address only show up in the port group 1 not port group 2?
see attach photo for detail.
A screenshot of the vSwitch and the port groups would help.
What do you mean by “show up”?
And now a screenshot of the VM settings (including all network adapters) of PAN-VM-100 please.
The following are my VM setting for VM firewall and standard's switch's port group.
The VM firewall function well.
I just curious about why those mac address display in other port group which I didn't assign for?
Thanks for your time
All 3 port groups are using the same uplink port (vmnic0) and are in the same VLAN (0).
At the moment every NIC can see every other NIC from a layer 2 perspective.
I wonder if that is confusing the info displayed in the UI.
Definition from vmware document.
Port groups aggregate multiple ports under a common configuration and provide a stable anchor point for virtual machines connecting to labeled networks. vSphere Standard Switch Network. Each port group is identified by a network label, which is unique to the current host.
I tested with my virtual router which have three interfaces and each interface assign to each port group. And router's interface mac address display correctly from the standard virtual switch. No vlan added just unique port group.
It might be my setting in Palo Alto VM firewall issue.
Thank you so much for you time and help.
