we had exactly the same issues in our environment and I just want to summarize the gathered information from some blog articles (thank you all!) needed to fix the issues here:
After some more time of searching I found your question / link here:
Though the title of the linked KB article in the blog replies (29th of July) is rather misleading – and therefore hard to find for customers with that issue – it has done the trick:
Hopefully the mentioned bug get’s fixed soon in a new VDP / vCenter release or patch and moreover I hope that the support team is able to associate upcoming issues like this with the known bug.
It would be very helpful to have a KB article on this which is not only addressing deployment issues but issues with VDP and the use of distributed switches!
Kind regards, pw
Thanks for collating all the documents.
You can certainly open a case with VMware if you would like a fix for it and we will get it patched for you.
The KB article is pulled out by the documentation team. The fix is planned to be included in the next release of VDP.
