VMware ESXi 5.1.0 Host in DR Site losing network connection

Hi all,

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

I have a VMware ESXi 5.1.0 Host in a DR Site but its keeps losing network connection every now and again.

It then needs to be manual powered done and turned back on. Its then is all good but I dont know where to start for troubleshooting on why it happens. I hard to tell from the server logs.

When this does happen I try ping it and out of the 4 packets that comeback 75% of them are lost.

This happens nearly once every month.

There is any other device on DR site that you can test ping and see if any ping if lost ? If you lost ping for other devices, than the problem is network related and non vSphere related.

Thanks for your reply Richardson

The DR site has end users working there. I can ping their machines and devices with no issues so its not a network related problem.

If a reboot of the host is done to fix the problem then that would rule out the network problem in anyway.
