Can't create Transport Node Profile

Jump to solution

Hi, me again...

Cleaned up my cluster and upgraded my VDS to version 7.   I am still having problems creating the Transport Node profile.

I am now able to select my VDS after I select my cluster - everything looks swell to me, screen shot attached - but when I go to add I get error message...

Must provide VDS uplink or VDS lag in VdsUplink for nsx uplink(s)

Not sure what this means, when I create the uplink profile, it is kind of weird, when I press save, the screen starts flashing rapidly, it says it is created, and when I refresh it looks normal and the uplink profile is there as I asked it to be created.... 

I haven't got any more ideas on this other than going to inspect those host switch numbers I guess...

It seams you did not finish the last part of the configuration called "Teaming Policy Switch Mapping"

In this part you have to map the NSX Uplinks you defined in the uplink profile (uplink-1 and uplink-2 in your picture) to the uplinks of your vDS. At the bottom of the screen you attached there is a column called "Uplinks" (these are the NSX uplinks) and you need to fill in the other column called "VDS Uplinks". Click on the blank spaces in this second column and choose the appropriate VDS uplink to finish the configuration.

Had you done this already?

doh! face-palm... all that.  I didn't see that at all and the blog I was following had it there, but I didn't notice it... those edit boxes are very subtle the first time you are working with this.  Thanks!  created the trasnport profile at long last!
