Im just trying to make clear in my head if I really need to separate the VMware management network from the production network? I appreciate security could be an issue but are there any other reasons why I would need to do it if Im not using vmotion? I am also allocating 2 dedicated ports on 2 separate nics for this.
The idea for my production environment is to have 2 identical hosts and replicate the VM’s from one host to the other as failover using vaeem. I will also have a file level backup solution in place and eventually add a NAS to backup the VM infrastructure to (at that point I think then a separate management subnetvlan will be required?
