Answer

You can modify default vMotion TCP/IP stack and NDE Scale will still let you expand existing HCI cluster

Additional Information

By using the vMotion TCP/IP stack, vSphere vMotion traffic can be assigned a default gateway on its own subnet and can go over layer 3 networks. The vMotion TCP/IP stack is not available in the default vDS vmkernel wizard, and therefore the vmkernel adapter must be created directly on the ESXi hosts.
