Fairly new to ESXi, using 4.1
Has a vSwitch setup with both physical nic cards, one of them is for the public network of the host server and the other is for the private network.
Without mapping one of the nics to a second vSwitch, will ESXi and my VMs actually be able to use both nics?
Realistically I want ESXi management network for vSphere to use the public network nic so that I can control it, and the Virtual Machines should also use the public network nic so they can be reachable servers.
The private nic can stay on the box so that the hosting provider can monitor it and provide me access via IPMI as needed, but otherwise I don't think I need it...
