I’ve deployed a new vcenter, photon appliance, 6.5 u1, used migration assistant coming from a physical hp server with vcenter 5.5, 2 hosts are also on 5.5, installed back then with HPE ISO.
After upgrading, the cluster for the two hosts shows no HA available. vcenter cannot see the physical adapter into the VDS, I cannot find the 2 vmkernels either. I can ping them, I can ping the VMs running (still up in their own VLANs), but in new 6.5 venceter, they don’t show. I tried to reboot a VM, it doesn’t even come back up because the host’s state doesn’t allow it.
I can use the cli on ssh console in the host to boot it back again.
The hosts are HP DL385p Gen8, they have multiple cards quad pci and quad onboard, all of them into a distributed switch in the cluster.
