I have DELL 1850 poweredge server with ESX Server 3.5. Server is having two NIC card. We have one IP (network) with routed traffic and one IP (network) with non routed traffic. Routed network has VLAN ID.
First I tried to give routed IP to the NIC at the time of installation of ESX server with Gateway, Subnet Mask, DNS Server. ESX server was unreachable and server was not pinging.
Second I tried to give non routed IP to the NIC at the time if re-installation of ESX server with all details. Still the problem persists.
Can anyone help me to resovl this problem so that I can connect this ESX server to the Virtual Center.
add vmnic1 as uplink for vSwitch1 because vSwitch have not uplink
esxcfg-vswitch -L vmnic1 vSwitch1
and restart network service
service network restart
post output of
then try to ping esx by ip address. could you ping your gateway from esx or dns or service console ip address?
Thanks for your quick response.
As per your post I have added the VMNIC1 in VSWIF1.
Now the output for VSWIF command is not changed. And for Vswitch it is showing as VMNIC1 in Uplink under Vswitch1.
I am not able to ping to the Gateway from ESX server. Also I am not able to ping to ESX server console from any machine in network.
Thanks for your response.
I am still unable to ping the gateway and ESX server is still unreachable. I have followed all the steps as per the link mentioned in your earlier post.
Kindly help me more in this.
