Task 1: Create a distributed switch, (DVS).
First of all, we will go through the Wizard using the Suggested options as per the instruction book. only using the newest distributed switch.
Task 2: Add the ESXi Hosts to the New Distributed Switch
Now going through the Wizard with the suggested options as per the suggestions in the booklet.
Task 3: Examine Your Distributed Switch Configuration
Once we have done that we need to have a look at the DVS we have just done.
After this, we will just check the Uplink config and make sure this is correct.
After this, we need to make sure our port group is configured correctly.
Task 4: Migrate the Virtual Machines to a Distributed Switch Port Group.
For this, we are going to move our VM from the standard switch to the new Port group.
Now we must check a few things, the first of which is the Host as seen below.
Then the VM,
then the Distributed Portgroup and the uplink portgroup.
Once this is done we need to make sure the VM has network connection.
After this, we then need to undo the DVS changes so we can do the next lab.
