ESXi: Binding a NIC to VM on my Microserver Gen8


Recommended Posts



As the MS Gen8 has 2 NICs I would like to use one NIC for a internal network (let's say to hors my NAS-VM. The other NIC should be used for a network of webservers (


How can I tell my VM " Use this physical NIC" ?

Create a new vSwitch in your host configuration and attach the physical NIC to it + the NAS VM.


If you want an "internal" switch i.e one where VM's are attached (so that they can talk to each other) and there is no access needed to the outside would, then I think all you need to do is just create a new vSwitch, and attach the Vm's to it, you don't need it to be bound to a physical nic.
