Load balance Virtual Machines on CSM

Hi, we would like to load balance two VMs running on an ESX server, however, there are other VMs on the same ESX, all share the same physical connection, the issue being when moving this connection into the load balanced vlan, all traffic will then be via the CSM which we do not want.

Is there any way ?

Re: Load balance Virtual Machines on CSM

Assuming that you are using routed mode, what you could do is use one armed mode, but then you will need to enable nat or policy based routing. Or when your in bridge mode you can do one armed with direct server return. One arm mode places the msfc in the middle off all traffic.

You can also place the msfc on the server side.
