Hi all! I suspect that I am doing something wrong here but I can’t get where I am missing something or making a mistake.
Home Lab Environment:
– 192.168.90.X/24 network – no VLANs involved
– 3 ESXi hosts
I am trying to install and prepare NSX-V which requires dswitch connectivity for the appliance uplinks.
vSAN / vMotion traffic is already running on a separate vnic and on a second dswitch, no issues here.
However as soon as I try to migrate the management vmkernel from the standard switch (created during installation) to a newly created dswitch port group (VLAN type: non here) using the migration wizard, I immediately lose connectivity to the hosts as well as to the vCenter although it is basically the same network. I migrate all physical adapters, vmkernel + vm networking from the switch to a dswitch port group during the process.
The configuration is then rolled back automatically after some moments and connectivity is restored.
So far I also created additional vmkernel adapters on all three hosts on a distributed port group – no pinging to them possible from the network after creation.
Am I missing something important?
