This video shows how to perform the following tasks easily:

  • Creating a vSphere Distributed Switch
  • Adding Hosts to the Created vSphere Distributed Switch
  • Creating Distributed Port Groups
  • Creating a VMKernel NIC with vMotion Enabled
  • Creating a VMKernel NIC with Fault Tolerance Enabled
