I'm having trouble finding concrete evidence that doing what I am trying to do is not supported in ESXi (5.1). Maybe my google-fu is just not working today.
I have an ESXi host that I have connected to 2 VLANs I would like each VLAN to be able to manage the server using vSphere Client. I cannot configure the switch to allow communication to the server. When I add the second vmkernel port it disconnects me from the vSphere client on my desktop and I have to access the server physically and reconfigure the management network.
Is it impossible to have VMkernel on two vSwitches that are different (V)LANs?
