hi we are in a process to purchase a virtualized solution from HP (c-3000,HP Virtual Connect Flex-10 10Gb Ethernet Module, HP BL 460 G6, SB-40 with PVA ).
my concern is the following: assume i have virtual machines like DNS , WEB and Email which is distributed between 4 ESX Hosts, configured to have a Public IP address and vMotion is enabled with DRS, HA. now one or multiple of these are vMotioned to different ESX host.
- how to guarantee that the network profile is also moving with the vMotion? i believe if the network profile (Public IP and other virtual nic configuration for that virtual machine ) didn't move as well then those public servers will lose thier functionality and will appear as if they were down.
- does HP virtual connect switch have the ability to do this or we need to consider other elements?
