As long as you have vMotion configured on your hosts and the hosts your moving VMs between are compatible then it will work. You do not need a vMotion vmnic on each VM

Only if you add 2 vmnics to your VM, one of the vmk port group and another on the "data" port group

i see that every vm will have only an vmnic and vmkernel is used on host by vmostion or iscsi,nfs -there is no need of other vmnic in vm.right?

i think that nic bonding is better to have on physical nics on host rather in every vm.right?
