VxRail Networking Random IPs

MuhammadKhaled

I am working with a customer who wants to use random IPs for VxRail networking (ESXi, vSAN, vMotion) and avoid using sequential IPs as requested by the deployment tool starting IP and ending IP for each network!

 

Normal case, for 6 hosts the ESXi IPs will be as follow:

Starting IP: 192.168.80.1

Ending IP: 192.168.80.6

 

 

However, it's requested to have the 6 hosts and its network configurations as follow:

ESXi IPs  (Sequential Even numbers)

192.168.80.2

192.168.80.4

192.168.80.6

192.168.80.8

192.168.80.10

192.168.80.12

 

vMotion (Sequential Odd numbers)

172.16.63.201

172.16.63.203

172.16.63.205

172.16.63.207

172.16.63.209

172.16.63.211

 

vSAN (Random Numbers)

172.18.15.130

172.18.15.132

172.18.15.135

172.18.15.138

172.18.15.141

172.18.15.150

 

How can this be implemented using the VxRail deployment tool which is asking only for starting and ending IP for each network?

 

Hope if somebody can help on this.
