    ESXi 6.0 U2 ping problems

    Comnovis Novice

      Hi,

      all devices are on the same subnet.

      I can ping both, the ESXI Host and our Monitoring Server, but the ESXi Host and the Monitoring Server cannot ping each other.

      Firewall on the Monitoring Server is off. The ESXI Host has not changed any Firewall Settings. Reboot both does not help.

      What can I do?

          Is the Subnet Mask and Default Gateway configured the same on both devices?

            Hello,

             

            questions below.

            Hi,

            all devices are on the same subnet.

            I can ping both, the ESXI Host and our Monitoring Server, but the ESXi Host and the Monitoring Server cannot ping each other.

             

             

            #### from your ph. PC? Can you ping your PC  from ESX host and from the monitoring server also?

              So many questions...

               

              Is the monitoring server a Windows Server? is so is the firewall off (as in disabled) or is the firewall on but you have allowed all traffic through?

               

              Is your workstation on a different network (VLAN) to the ESXi and Monitoring server? 

               

              Is the Monitoring server a VM on the ESXi server or a different physical box? 

               

              How many network connections does the Monitoring server have? is the bind order correct if it has more than one NIC? 

               

              Are you VLAN tagging the network? does the ESXi Management NIC need a VLAN added to it?

               

              Have you tried to TRACERT <ESXI IP> from the management server?

                Thanks for your Responses so far.

                 

                Subnet Mask and Default Gateway are the same for all devices.

                ESXi can ping my PC, Monitoring Server as well.

                Firewall is completely off (for testing) on the Monitoring Server (SBS 2011), with no AV installed.

                Monitoring Server is a VM on a different ESXi which has no problems with pinging.

                No multiple NICs on ESXi and no VLAN in the whole network.

                Tracerouting each other just gives * * * timeout while working on both devices from my PC.

                Any more ideas? Thanks!

                  I ended up reinstalling 6.0 Update 2, preserving Datastore and now it works.
