Port binding for NVMe over TCP involves creating a virtual switch and connecting the physical network adapter and the VMkernel adapter to the vswitch. Through this connection, the TCP adapter becomes bound to the VMkernel adapter. In the configuration, you can use a vSphere standard switch or a vSphere distributed switch.

The following diagram displays the port binding for the NVMe over TCP adapter.

For more information about creating switches, see Create a vSphere Standard Switch or Create a vSphere Distributed Switch in the vSphere Networking documentation.
