I just try that on ESXi 5.5,

You can add vSwitch for each, but for notes, set the vSwitch to Accept Promiscuous.

Thank you for your reply. but, i am not sure how can add the vSwitch.
Could you please give more detail?
I made some articles how to here, https://chairulmanalu.wordpress.com/2017/04/26/deploy-evpn-cumulus-in-vmware-esxi/

Basically, you add vSwitch/Virtual Switch as network connection between Leaf-Host.

So for your topology, you should have 2 vSwitch connecting Leaf-Host1 and Leaf-Host2.

To create vSwitch you can check VMWare site.
Hi,

in VirtualBox, you configure the virtual network adapters to use Internal Networks, giving each Internal Network a name. All virtual network adapters using an Internal Network of the same name are connected together. The idea is similar to using internal vSwitches with VMware.

Thanks,

Thank you! Erik!

I have confirmed the "internal networks" on Virtual box.
and, trying to assign the "internal networks" based adapter in each VM to Cumulus.

your advice was very helpful to me to know about vswitch on VirtualBox.

Thank you again!
