useProvisioningTCP / IP StackCold isolation migration flow VM cloning and snapshots, and assign a default gateway for this purpose a dedicated traffic, routing tables, and DNS configurations. To enable provisioning TCP / IP stack, please assign a new VMkernel adapter.
1, shown in Figure 1, in vSphere Web Client, navigate toHost. existmanage, SelectThe internetAnd then select VMkernel adapter. ClickAdd a host network(icon).
2, as shown in FIG. 2, in the "Select the connection type"Page, select VMkernel network adapter, Then clickNext step.
3, as shown in Figure 3, in the "Select the target device"Page, select Switch Network VMkernel adapter and clickNext step. Here is our previously existing network has been built for vMotion network.
4, as shown in FIG. 4, in the "Port Properties"Page, from TCP / IP StackDrop-down menu, selectProvisioning. Provisioning traffic will become the only enabled services.Not this VMkernel Adapter for flow type other than provisioning.
5, (optional): as shown in FIG. 5, in the "IPv4 set up"Page, select the option to obtain an IP address.
6, see "will complete"Selected on the Page Setup, then clickFinish.
in conclusion:existProvisioning TCP / IP After you create a VMkernel adapter on the stack, this stack can only be used on this hostCold migration, cloning and snapshots. The default TCP / IP stack VMkernel adapter for Provisioning services are disabled. If a live migration using the default TCP / IP stack, and you have to use provisioning TCP / IP stack to configure the VMkernel adapter, data transfer will be completed successfully. However, the default VMkernel adapter on the stack TCP / IP for future cold migration, cross-host cloning and snapshot session is disabled.
