Subject ACS 4.2.1 - Multi-Zone vSphere Architecture
Date Mon, 25 Nov 2013 02:02:03 GMT
Hi all,

Im after some guidance on setting up ACS 4.2.1 with vSphere in a multi zone environment. The
only way I have been able to successfully build a zone to this point is by having vSphere,
ESXi console ports, ACS and the reserved system range on a single VLAN. This is OK for a small,
single site deployment but how does this translate for multiple zones? The docs suggest that
configuring a single /20 range for management is desired, does that imply that that range
should be stretched across sites?

Should it be possible to have a dedicated VLAN at each site for vCenter, ESXi console ports
and the system VM's, and then have the ACS server sitting in a separate VLAN that can route
between both networks? I have been unsuccessful in getting his working to date so hopefully
someone out there has some experience setting up a multi-site ACS/vSphere envoronment.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!
