Sorry for a basic question but due to an office move I'm currently re-architecting our proxy setup & something is making me think of a message I see occasionally which points out that some element, I think the proxy VM, is "not on the same network as the management network of the host" or words to that effect.
Could someone please remind me what component that is, and why it might be beneficial (or bad).
I'm thinking beneficial for restores which, I think, always go in via the console interface, but then if doing so via a proxy it doesn't help anything anyway as the proxy will still talk to the repository over the network anyway.
Then again it could be the all-in-one B&R/Proxy/Repos (physical) box which is sensible to have on a "normal" network rather than same as the ESXi managment network anyway.
Unless the underlying mention is simply along the lines of "doing it this way means you're always routing to the ESXi interface which might be slightly lower performing than if it were on the same subnet".
Does my question even make sense?
