We seem to have this weird issue with some of the servers when they use vmotion. The server moves from server to server without any issue but when it completes the move the server drops off the network. when you check the server all settings look ok. To resolve this issue I have to change from production network connection to a seperate test netork connection & then switch it back!!. After this everything jumps back into life.
Anybody come across this before?
Haven't seen this my self. What version is it u are running on ? Are the Vmtools up to date ?

thanks for the replies.
VMtools 3.50 build 123630
does this happen when manually using vmotion? not sure. I think this has happened whilst doing a cold migration & DRS
problem is still ongoing but i have manged to find out that if if try to ping servers that are all on the same vswitch then i receive a response but if i try to ping machines out of the vswitch i get no response. If i try to ping from a server not on the vswitch i also dont receive a response.
i have tried reinstalling vmtools on the servers but this has also failed. If you reboot the vm it still fails to get a response from a ping, you have to power off the vm and power on. this only seems to be happensing on one host server.
any help much appreciated. this is driving me nuts!!
