You can configure this from within virtual networking.

One you have added a new port group off the virtual switch you wish to monitor.
Enable option promiscuous mode to accept on the port group.

  1. Log into the ESXi/ESX host or vCenter Server using the vSphere Client.
  2. Select the ESXi/ESX host in the inventory.
  3. Click the Configuration tab.
  4. In the Hardware section, click Networking.
  5. Click Properties of the virtual switch for which you want to enable promiscuous mode.
  6. Select the virtual switch or port group you wish to modify and click Edit.
  7. Click the Security tab.
  8. From the Promiscuous Mode dropdown menu, click Accept.
