It is a feature in Project Crossbow. In one sense, it is the mechanism by which several entities (e.g. several zones) share a physical NIC. In other words, vSwitches connect vNICs to a physical NIC. > Should I also have a vswitch in the middle? And connect all local zones to > the vswitch? That depends on your goals. Unless you have more NICs than zones, you will need at least one vSwitch. --JeffV _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list email@example.com
