If I am running VMWare server on a Linux host, and the VMs are using bridged network, will the VMs know to failover to the other NIC? I don't have a clear picture of how VMWare bridged networking actually works.
I still need to go read more about Linux bonding. My goal is to have a secondary NIC that is failover where the switches do not need to be stacked (Each nic will be connected to a different switch, the switches will be trunked). So maybe I will ask this in a second question, and it is kind of a bonus question here :-)
