Is it possible to deliver captured traffic (span) to a server in ESX (VMware)?

Hi Guys,

I have a request to capture traffic on the LAN and deliver it to a virtual server in a ESX VMware enviroment.

Has anyone tried this?

The topology is this:

WAN--Gateway--LAN--6500s--portchannel---Server with ESX (virtual server)

Data coming from the WAN entering the LAN on a specific port, needs to be captured, and sent to a specific virtual server.

Do you think this is possible?

Thanks.

Adrian

If you put the ESX servers VMNIC port as destination it should be possible. You need to configure SPAN in Vmware though to send it to specific virtual machine. See if this link helps:
