vMotion with different Mgmt network

Hi All,

I have 3 ESXi host  in a cluster having

     2 ESXi  (name: ESXi-A & ESXi-B) host with the management IP 192.168.0.1 and

     1 ESXi (name: ESXi-C) host with the management IP 172.0.0.1

But my vMotion Network are configured on different vSwitch and are having the same IP address 172.0.3.x by all the 3 ESXi host.

Now Can I do a vMotion between ESXi-C to (ESXi A or ESXi-B) having different management networks ?

If all three hosts are in the same cluster, or at least present the same CPU features, vMotion should work as expected. However, keep in mind that - depending on the vSphere version used - your hosts need port groups with the same names, ...

Yes this is no problem. Even if all your hosts where in a different network for vMotion it would work, as long as the network is routable. vMotion across L3 domains is supported these days: http://www.yellow-bricks.com/2015/02/05/new-vmotion-vsphere-6-0/

Hi All,

Based on the above query, Can I set different gateway other then management to my vMotion IP settings.

Will this change my default gateway of Management on setting vMotion into an existing environment
