    Unable to re-attach same vmnic to uplink after change in IP address of ESX

      VC Version is 5.5.0, Build 1312298

      ESXi Version is 5.5.0, 2068190

      IP address of ESXi was changed. After changing IP addresses the host was removed from inventory and re-added to VC with its new IP address.

      After host was added it shows error saying " The vsphere distributed switch corresponding to the proxy switches xx xx xx ... on the host does not exist in vcenter server or does not contain this host. To resolve this issue rejoin host to <DVS-Name>. Go to Host -> Configuration -> Networking to manually remove the invalid proxy switches"

      After trying to add this host again to DVS by going through -> DVS -> Add new host -> following all steps to add host and all its uplinks/vmk ports it fails saying --

      "

      vDS operation failed on host <host IP>, Received SOAP response fault from [<cs p:00007effbdb5baf0, TCP:<host ip>:443>]: invokeHostTransactionCall

      Received SOAP response fault from [<cs p:1f3cbbf0, TCP:localhost:8307>]: invokeHostTransactionCall

      An error occurred during host configuration. got (vim.fault.PlatformConfigFault) exception"

       

      Also getting this error in vc's vpxd log -

      017-12-07T06:30:10.974Z [7EFFB2B5C700 error 'operationhostOp' opID=50969c53] [MoDVSwitch::SendHostMemberChangeToHostsInParallel] failed in calling host dvs manager (op=edit): got [vim.fault.PlatformConfigFault exception:

      -->       }

      -->    ],

      -->    text = "",

      -->    msg = "Received SOAP response fault from [<cs p:00007effb4ed1cb0, TCP:1<host IP>:443>]: invokeHostTransactionCall

      --> An error occurred during host configuration."

      --> }]

       

       

      Same operations are successful when we do it on freshly deployed system in lab environment but is failing in our production ?

      Any help appreciated !

       

      Thanks in advance,
