Hello community I hope everyone is fine.
I’m a vSphere & NSX rookie (actually I have networking and security background, so everything involving VMWare it’s very new to me) anyway, I have an NSX Version:6.1.3 deployment and I’m experiencing a communication problem between Edge GW and DLR.
I’m creating a very simple deployment: Network-A & Network-B communicated thru a DLR (picture) and everybody ping each other below the DLR, no problem there. The VMs ping each other in vDS1 and ping the VM in vDS2 and viceversa.
The issue, is in the “Edge GW” that simply do not communicate properly with DLR (sometimes ON, sometimes OFF the ping between them) and no communications from the VMs to the outside world what so ever. I have disable all firewalls in the EDGE and the DLR FYi.
~ # /etc/init.d/netcpad stop & ~ # /etc/init.d/netcpad start
and I’m getting very weird replies when I try this command:
vcenter:~ # /etc/init.d/netcpad stop
bash: /etc/init.d/netcpad: No such file or directory
and then I tried (also recommended in the article above):
vcenter:~ # net-vdr
bash: net-vdr: command not found
Now I’m very stuck because I’m not sure if I configured a proper “Host Installation” (I remember that I had to forced the installation, "Force-sync" I think it was the option I selected) or if I have to check if anything else is wrong.
I have doubts if I’m trying the commands in the CLI in the wrong prompt, I’ve noticed that the screenshots on the workaround only have the ~# at the beginning and mine says “vcenter”. Maybe it sounds stupid but I’ve tried every workaround I had my hands on and I’m doubting everything around this deployment and again I'm a rookie, so I think I can ask every stupid question I want (haha ).
Any clue or any idea you can direct my way, would be very much appreciate it.
