Hi,

what are you looking for? For Heartbeat, you do not Need a vDS to Setup two Servers.

You could also use the "normal" vSwitch for Heartbeat.

In V2V, if primary and secondary server on two different ESXi hosts, I have to use vDS, right?

No. You could use a normal vSwitch.

You don't need a vds.

How can you set up primary and secondary VMs on 2 different esxi hosts with a vSS?

Hi,

there are serval Options.Check the Installation and upgrade pdf at page 30.

You could use a two or one NIC configuration.

We are using a two nic configuration with different VLAN´s on Portgroups defined on a vSwitch.

The VM has two Network Card. One in Portgroup 10 and the other for example in portgroup 20.

I don´t know your Network configuration. This is one possibility.

Why do you think you need a vDS?
