NSX Controller timeout/ VIB installation fails

Hi NSX Experts,

It's my first time to deploy NSX in my local lab I came across these errors, please advise

Note:- NSX Manager IP: 192.168.2.200

vCenter VM:- two NICs one of them is 192.168.2.100

my Hosts in question already configured with both IP subnets VMKernels in 192.168.1.0/24 and 192.168.2.0/24

========================================================================================

While deploying Controller VM I came across that error also

Thanks in Advance for your help

Do I need to re-configure my Physical NICs or I am missing some steps ?

Looks like a potential connectivity issue between VC,ESXI and NSX Manager. You have two interfaces for VC and ESXI and i suspect a routing issue in your set-up. Why don't you make NSX manager,VC and ESXI host in same subnet ? If that is not feasible , do a proper connectivity test between these components

1. Can VC reach ESXI and NSX ? Which interface/gateway is used for this path ?

2. NSX to ESXI/VC how is the communication path  ?

3. If any firewall rules in place , ensure all required ports are opened.

4. Considering this is nested, potential MAC learning issues can happen . So Promiscuous mode will be required.
