I have posted the question from Vmware ESXi standpoint but it is more of networking stuff . That is why I posted here .Anybody please answer with the details in Cisco way
Brief explanation of Above mentioned Scenario:
There are three VMs connected to vSwitch.
VM1 Mac Adress is AA
VM2 Mac Address is BB
VM3 Mac Address is CC
vmnic0 is uplink connected to Physical Switch Port ( Let’s say 0/1).
This Uplink Mac Address is XX.
The question here is
How Physical Switch will be processing VMs Packets coming from vSwitch and goes on Wire.
- Physical Switch will be masking all VMs MAC address with Uplink Mac Address(XX) ( similar to NAT implementation)
- Virtual Switch will be masking all outgoing VMs MAC address with Uplink Mac Address
- Physical Switch Will be learning VMs MAC address and updating MAC table with only VMs MAC address.
- Physical Switch will having both VM MAC address and Uplink Mac Address in its MAC table
Any advice is highly appreciated!
