About Ethernet networks

Use Ethernet networks as data networks. You can create the following types of Ethernet networks:

These Ethernet networks can be used in internal networks or in uplink sets.

You can categorize the purpose of the network as:
  • General
  • Management
  • VM Migration
  • iSCSI
  • Fault Tolerance

The network purpose does not affect the behavior of the network.

Private network

A private network is available for Ethernet networks only. The private network feature provides additional network security by limiting traffic flow for the given network. Since the server ports in a private network cannot communicate with each other within the logical interconnect, all server packets are sent through the logical interconnect and out the uplink ports.
