What is true about migrating VM21 to the new host?

A virtual machine, VM21, will be migrated between two ESXi 5.x hosts, labeled ESXi01 and ESXi02. Each host has two vSphere Standard Switches (vSS), configured as follows.

1. vSwitch0 has a portgroup labeled Management and a portgroup labeled vMotion.

2. The Management portgroup contains a vmkernel port tagged for management traffic.

3. The vMotion portgroup contains a vmkernel port tagged for vMotion traffic.

4. vSwitch0 on ESXi01 has a single uplink attached to the 10.1.20.0/24 network.

5. vSwitch0 on ESXi02 has a single uplink attached to the 10.1.20.0/24 network.

6. Each host has a vSwitch1 with a Production portgroup used by virtual machine traffic.

7. Each vSwitch1 has an uplink attached to the 10.1.40.0/24 network.

    Log in to the vSphere Client and select the Hosts and Clusters inventory view.
    2
    Select the host in the inventory pane.
    3
    On the host Configuration tab, click Networking.
    4
    In the vSphere Standard Switch view, click Add Networking.
    5
    Select VMkernel and click Next.
    6
    Select the vSphere standard switch to use, or select Create a vSphere standard switch to create a new vSphere standard switch.
    7
    Select the check boxes for the network adapters for your vSphere standard switch to use.
    Select adapters for each vSphere standard switch so that virtual machines or other services that connect through the adapter can reach the correct Ethernet segment. If no adapters appear under Create a new vSphere standard switch, all the network adapters in the system are being used by existing vSphere standard switches or vSphere distributed switches. You can either create a vSphere standard switch without a network adapter, or select a network adapter that an existing vSphere standard switch uses.
    8
    Click Next.
    9
    Select or enter a network label and a VLAN ID.
    Option
    Description
    Network Label
    A name that identifies the port group that you are creating. This is the label that you specify when you configure VMkernel services such as vMotion and IP storage and you configure a virtual adapter to be attached to this port group.

    VLAN ID
    Identifies the VLAN that the port group’s network traffic will use.

    10
    (Optional) Select Use this port group for vMotion to enable this port group to advertise itself to another host as the network connection through which vMotion traffic should be sent.
