SQL cluster on VMware (Heartbit connection)

This post was originally published on this site

Hi,

 

in an onpremise environment until Windows 2008 we always used a heartbeat NIC.

 

From Windows 2012 the heartbit is not mandatory as we can use the LAN NIC.

 

In VMware environment when we create a cluster what is the recommendation? Create a NIC connected to a dedicated vSwitch between the VMs in the same cluster.

 

My environment is Windows 2019.

 

Thank you.
