Hello I am planning to install 10 ESX hosts in dell blades each having 4 nic. The hosts will be having WEB server VM's which will be in DMZ network. For the purpose of managment, I am planning to connect all service console network in Management Vlan's and Vcenter also in same Vlan. The VM virtual switch will have remaining two nic's which will connect to the DMZ network.
So what ports will need to be opened for the communication of VM, VMkernal, Service console and Vcenter.
(Also would like to know can VMkernal and Vm portgroup be on same vswitch) in DMZ.
