VMware Administration - 3. Understand Physical and VMware Networking Basics
At the core of vSphere Networking are virtual switches. vSphere supports standard switches (VSS) and distributed switches (VDS). Each virtual switch has a preset number of ports and one or more port groups.
Watch the below video tutorial
I have covered the following things in one video !! have some patience and apologies for mistakes !!
1. Basic Networking
2 Types of IP address: 1. Private (non Routable) & 2. Public (Routable)
Class A : 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52
Enterprise Level 10.0.0.0 to 10.255.255.255 - taken out for CLASS A private purpose ==============================
184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11 &18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124 - are public IPs in CLass A

Class B 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11
Small & Mid Enterprise's 172.16.0.0 to 18.104.22.168 - Taken out for CLASS B Private purpose ===============================
22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199 & 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206 - are public IPs in Class B
Class C 192.0.0.0 to 220.127.116.11
Home Purpose 192.168.0.0 to 192.168.255.255 - Taken out for CLASS C private purpose ==============================
192.0.0.0 to 18.104.22.168 & 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199 - are public IPs in Class C
What is VLAN?
Simply a grouping of Some devices in your organisation
VLAN 1: 192.168.1.0 to 192.168.1.255 - 256 IPs (0 & 255 are gone) you can use 254 Ip's
Gateway : 192.168.1.100
Source is: 192.168.1.149 (My laptop) to Destination is : 192.168.151(My ESXi) - no gateway
Source is: 192.168.1.149 (My laptop) to Destination is : 192.168.40.40(vCenter) -need gateway ============================================================
2. What is Vmware Networking
By Default When you install ESXi Host, one Switch will be deployed Called as vSpher Standard Switch.
It contains 2 Components 1. Kernel Port 2. VM Port groups
VMKerner port is responsible to Respond back for Host requests.
VM Port groups will be used to manage Virtual Machine Traffic via diff VLAN Mapping's
What is Access Port
What is Trunk Port
What is L2 Switch
What is L3 Switch
