I've installed ESXI 6 onto a new host and have configured the network in the usual way but it cannot ping the gateway. I can see all of the Nic's are connected and have verified the settings. I've looked in the logs and can see the following errors
In the vobd log i see physical link state is up followed by An event (esx.clear.net.vmnic.linkstate.up) could not be sent immediately to hostd; queuing for retry
in the log cannot open file DictionaryLoad:"//.vmware/preferences": no such file or directory
Kindly provide an DNS to be resolved from outside of firewall
Google DNS 126.96.36.199
If you're using VLANs in your network, check if you have it configured correctly.
I've set the VLan on the host to the same as the one set on the switch (I also have my IDRAC connection on the same VLAN and this works ok) I am unable tpo even ping the gateway by it's IP address and cannot ping the hosts from the switch or other hosts on the same network
