These diagrams show different physical network switch wiring examples. They are provided as illustrative examples.
Figure 27 VxRail nodes with two ports connected to 2x TOR switches, 1x Optional Management Switch with iDRAC
VxRail nodes with four ports connected to 2x TOR switches, 1 x Optional Management Switch with iDRAC
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 30 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.
