    ESXi 5.5 - connect three servers without the switch for vSAN

    malefik Enthusiast

      Hello colleagues.

       

      Given: three servers, each of them with two network cards 10G. All NIC are connected one-to-another through a special cable for direct connection, i.e. topology is a "ring".

      Needed: set up so that all three servers have seen each other, and in case of a fall of any of them, the remaining went to see a fellow. Now if only on each server to create a vSwitch, assign a corresponding address (well, for example 192.168.92.1, mask 255.255.255.0, gateway 192.168.92.1) and add the network card 10G, the scheme is not running, the servers can not see each other.

       

      Share your experience: how to set up such a scheme?
