These diagrams show different physical network switch wiring examples. They are provided as illustrative examples.
Figure 33. VxRail nodes with two ports connected to 2x TOR switches, 1x Optional Management Switch with iDRAC
Figure 34. VxRail nodes with four ports connected to 2x TOR switches, 1 x Optional Management Switch with iDRAC
Figure 35. VxRail nodes with four ports connected to 4x TOR switches, 1x optional Management Switch with iDRAC
TOR 3 and 4's Upstream switches are optional because those TORs only carry vSAN and vMotion which might not need access to the rest of the network.
Figure 36. VxRail 2-Node Cluster with ports 1 and 2 connected to 2x TOR switches for external network traffic, and a direct connection between ports 3 and 4 on each node for internal network traffic
1/10/25GbE TOR switches are supported. Witness runs on host separate from 2-Node cluster and routable from 2xTOR switches.
