Network restore, auto-confguring network failed.

Hello, I have a problem.

Server was moved from one network to another. There used to be manual configuration, and was moved to network with DHCP - but that is not a point.

The problem is that I could not get IP addres , and decided to Restore Network Settings.

Result was:

Powering Off VMs. Done.

Auto-configuring network. Failed.

After that I have no access to Network Configuraion etc. I do not know what to do now.

Hmm, have you tried to resetting the system configuration (http://pubs.vmware.com/vsphere-50/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.vmware.vsphere.install.doc_50%2FGUID-AD450D...)? If you do not want to take such a harsh step you can log into the shell and try some esxcg- or esxcli commands to see what is going on...

esxcfg-vswitch -l

esxcfg-vmknic -l

esxcfg-route

Hope this helps! === If you find this information useful, please award points for "correct" or "helpful". ===

Hi,

If the host is not having any vms so just go for System reset option instead of network restore.

After restart your ESXi will come up without any missed options.

thanks,

I restored my host to standard switch and now my host will host not allow me to configure the default gateway. It says it cannot reach it. I tried to ping the default gateway form the offending host but it fails. I cannot ping the second host on the same network or ping itself. It was shipped by dill with dell custom image pre-installed, Should I reset the system? Will I lose the dell image when doing so? Thanks
