I would like to know if it's possible to access the ESXi configuration through vSphere using an dedicated network interface for IPMI connection with the motherboard.
We have some Supermicro boards, specifically X9SCM, with IPMI in a private 10.0.0.0/8 network and we would like to give the ESXi management console some IP address in this network too. But the guests should be able to bridge to a real IP address.
I can only think in some obscure VLAN configuration, but I don't know if I'm right.
Thanks in advance,
VLAN 1 - Managament (10.0.0.0/8)
VLAN 10 - Servers (x.y.z.0/26)
Gigabit Ethernet eth0 = VLAN10
Gigabit Ethernet eth1 = Not in use (and not supported by ESXi; it needs an additional e1000e network driver)
Fast Ethernet for IPMI = VLAN1
