Listen to configuring virtual standard switches.
By the end of this video will understand how to create virtual switches, four groups and how to connect the EMS to port groups.
Let's now connect to re center.
We're gonna be working with the three virtual machines we created earlier. Now all three v EMS have V necks that are connected to the default Port group called VM Network.
Let's verify that.
And lo and behold, that's the case Now. The VM Network Port group lives on the switch zero, which is the default. We switch
to display this relationship. Click on the year six. I host
and choose configure and then virtual switches,
and you can see here that without you creating any virtual switch V's, which zero is already there
at the bottom pain, you can see the VM Network Boat Group along with another port group called Management.
This one was also created by default to carry the traffic off the management of'em. Colonel,
don't worry about this now. We'll get to that when we create Veum Colonel ports later on. Now, since RV EMS are on the same port group. They should be on the same broadcast domain.
Let's verify the I P configuration on the Web Veum, for example,
and you can see that it has the 17 to $20.0 to 203.
So I would guess that the email and database PM's would have the 0.204 and Dr 105 respectively. Since they are configured for D H E P.
Let's try and pink them.
And lo and behold, the pain succeeds because all three V EMS are connected to the VM network support group.
Now let's create a different boat group.
To do so, click on the years Excite host,
head onto a configure and then virtual switches.
Then click on the icon that says, At networking,
you have three options.
You could create a new Veum Colonel Port, a new V M Port group,
or assign a new physical next to your existing basement.
Well, go ahead and choose the second option
and it will ask you if you want to create your port group on an existing V switch or
create a new movies, wait for your part group to separate its traffic from the existing port groups. This is the best practice we spoke about in the previous video,
so we'll go ahead and create a new V switch for our port group.
it will ask you to connect your new V switch to E physical Nick or V M. Nick.
So click on the plus sign to select a V M Nick and let's True svm Nick one.
If you notice via Mick, zero is not listed here
because it is already in use by the switch zero.
Now click next,
and now you'll have to name your port group.
Remember, the boat group is always identified by its name.
Let's name it d be for database because we will be using it to connect database viens later on for the veal in. Leave it to the default
it will show you a summary of what you've timed. Review it quickly and click finish
and voila! Here's our new fees, which and it is called fees. Which one?
If we click on it, you can see at the bottom pain that it has the port group called D B that we have just created.
it always blows my mind how simple it is to create objects in peace here.
Now let's go to our database PM and connected to the D B port group.
To do so. Right, click the VM and choose edit settings.
Then under the network adapter, which is nothing more than the V Nick off our VM click on the drop down menu and choose brows.
This will display all the port groups on all the V's witches that exists on more yes, exciting
Let's choose D B click. Okay, then click OK again
now on the network's tab in the middle. Pain. Make sure your database VM is selected in the inventory and learn. Behold, our VM is now connected to the DP Ports Group.
Let's opening Consul to the database VM
The PM is configured for D h E P. And since we've just changed the port group from VM network to DP, we need to release the old I'll Pee and getting you one. You do that with the D H client command on the Knicks.
Let's display the I pee now
and there you see it it got an I P in a different sub net.
If you try to ping the Web VM, which is on another part group, it won't work unless you configure routing in the physical network.
Let's not try to ping the default gateway off the V M
and it works.
Let me illustrate what we have just done.
We created a new fees, which with the Newport group called D B, and we connected the database VM to it,
then reconnected fees. Which one of'em nick one on the server.
The Web and email via MES are still connected to the default VM Network Boat group
and Peace, which zero is connected to a V M. Nick. Zero
Communication between the Web and email v. EMS is possible. However, communication between the database PM and either off the Web or email via MES is impossible at layer to without a physical router.
Now, let me ask you a question. What if we have another year's Excite host with another database, VM that needs layer to communication with our existing database? PM on the first host? Well, let's talk about that
