Assign specific NIC to a specific destination IP

This post was originally published on this site

Good morning

 

I wish to “route” NFS traffic out of a specific NIC for a specific NFS server

 

As far as I understand ESXi suggestion is “create a different network”, assign that network to a specific vmkernel + switch and associated NIC

 

A side effect of this approach is that I have other hosts that need to access NFS and they too should have IP in that subnet, if possible I would avoid this.

 

(having NFS traffic passing trough the default route is not acceptable)

 

So, the question is, can I route a specific destinatio trough a specific NIC ?

 

Thank you
