8.11 Place the cold migration flow in the provisioning TCPIP stack operation process

usePrepareTCP / IP StackIsolation of cold migration, virtual machine clones, and snapshot traffic, and distribute dedicated default gateways, routing tables, and DNS configurations for this traffic. To enable the provisioning TCP / IP stack, assign a new VMkernel adapter.


1. As shown in Figure 1 below, in the vSphere Web Client, navigate toHost. existmanageNext, chooseThe internet, Then select VMkernel adapter. ClickAdd a host network(icon).

2, as shown in Figure 2, "Select connection type"On page, choose VMkernel network adapter, Then clickNext step.

3, as shown in Figure 3, "Select target device"On page, select the switch network of the VMkernel adapter, and clickNext step. The existing network here is our previous network that has been used for VMotion.

4, as shown in Figure 4, "Port attribute"On the page, from TCP / IP StackSelect in the drop-down menuPrepare. The provisioning traffic will become the only service that is enabled.Cannot VMkernel Adapter is used for traffic types other than.

5, (optional): As shown in Figure 5, "IPv4 set up"On page, select Options for Get IP Address.

6, view "will complete"Select the settings on the page, then clickFinish.

in conclusion:existPrepare After creating a VMkernel adapter on the TCP / IP stack, you can only use this stack to this hostCold migration, cloning and snapshot. The VMkernel adapter on the default TCP / IP stack is in disabled status for the provisioning service. If a real-time migration uses the default TCP / IP stack, you use the provisioning TCP / IP stack to configure the VMkernel adapter, and the data transfer will be completed successfully. However, the VMkernel adapter on the default TCP / IP stack for future cold migration, cross-host clones, and snapshot sessions will be disabled.
