    Network & VMware Server 2

    Hi,

    I have a collection of Virtual Servers in VMware Server. I have added an extra Nic into the physical server.

    I have set it up so that this Nic is for the DMZ. The virtual machine can now communicate with the DMZ just fine. How would i configure it so that the physical machine is not connected the DMZ, just the virtual machine. I can ping devices on the DMZ from the physical server i donít want the ability for the host machine to communicate with the DMZ at all.

    Im sure its dead obvious but i cant find it.

    Thanks

    I don't think you can. the best you can do is have it on bridged mode with ip and network services unbound from the card in the windows host. I suspect if you disable it the adaptor will no longer work in vmware.

    I don't believe that any of the current hypervisors can do this, as the underlying hypervisor O/S needs to see the card to be able to hang virtual switches off it..

    ESX and ESXi can have a separate (and multiple) network cards just for different VM traffic that the host (or other VMs if you wish) does not use. You wont be able to communicate with the host over the various separated VM traffic networks.

    ESXi4 is 64bit only, so you might need to use esx3.5u4 on a 32bit machine.

    Looks like you can in Hyper V - baeke.info :: Microsoft Hyper-V: Network Adapters

    When you disable the network adapter that represents the physical adapter (Local Area Connection in my case), virtual machines and the parent partition will lose connectivity. When you disable only the virtual network adapter of the parent partition (Local Area Connection 3 in my case), you will lose network access to the parent partition but your virtual machines will still have access to the network. This is because they still have their virtual interface bridged over the physical adapter.
