    In vCenter, go to Home > Inventory > Networking.
    Right-click dvPortGroup and click Edit Settings.
    Under dvPortGroup Settings, specify:
    Setting Security:

    Promiscuous mode: Allows machines to see the traffic of all the other machines in the vDS.
    Mac address changes: Allows virtual machines to receive frames with a Mac Address that is different from the one configured in the VMX.
    Forged Transmits: Allows virtual machines to send frames with a Mac Address that is different from the one specified in the VMX.
