Network issues with host when quagga BGP router is vm


So we have: host esx 5.5 with vcenter 5.5 and distributed switch configured

Decided to manage BGP ourselves and configured quagga router on VM inside this host

Everything worked fine when gateways of our networks were up on uplink`s router. When we moved gateway IPs to our quagga router on vm what we got:

all VMs still work fine, no connectivity issues, but lost connection to host. In fact it is connection, but stacks on "loading inventory", vcenter also lost connection to host (vcenter has another IP from another network, from uplink

The question is: why all VMs still work fine, have correct traces, but esx not? As well cannot understand why IP network from uplink not working on vcenter host
