    VSAN on nested ESXi

    MRoushdy Enthusiast

      Hello, I've destroyed my VSAN  lab, and rebuilt again, but I have VSAN connectivity issue between hosts and I get this message on each host:


      Host cannot communicate with all other nodes in vSAN enabled cluster


      My setup is as following:

      • Physical ESXi 6.5 U2 host (lab base).
      • vCenter VCSA 6.7 U2.
      • a dedicated VSS on the main host with no uplinks for VSAN, security enabled settings are: Promiscuous mode/, Forged Transimts. MTU is 1500.
      • Three ESXi 6.7 U2 host VMs.
        • Six Nics
          • 2 x MGMT + vMotion
          • 2 x VSAN >> connected to the mentioned port group on the physical host for VSAN, and vmkping works fine between these virtual hosts on the VSAN vmkernel adapter.
          • 2 X VM traffic
      • Those hosts are joined to a distributed switch, and there's a port group for VSAN on that switch, with two vmnics.


      I've fixed this issue earlier on my previous lab, but with this new lab I have that mentioned error. Though, mixing and matching the portgroup security settings didn't make the hosts detect the VSAN connection well/.


      What would you suggest please?


      Thank you,
