NSX-V - Control plane issues

I am currently having issues with NSX-V 6.4.4. I am showing intermittent connection from the ESXi Host to the NSX Controllers.

What i am seeing is the next behaviour:

  • In the netcpa.log i see "Connection reset by peer"
  • If I do a tcpdump-uw from the ESXi I am also seeing a reset when the NSX Controller tries to establish the connection with the ESXi.
  • If I connect to the NSX Controller using root user I am not seeing any connection from the port 1234.

Every error points me that the issue is Firewall related but what about the "Connection reset"? It refers to a block?

Thanks you folks in advance.

Error "Connection reset by Peer" generally occurs when destination node is refusing connection and sending RST back in response. Can you post output of commands below:

On NSX Controller:

show control-cluster status

show control-cluster history

show control-cluster connections

On ESXi Host:

/etc/init.d/netcpad status

Is the controller located in the same network as the esxi?

If not, try to see if there is any routing issue or if there is a firewall in between the esxi and controller that my be interfering with the conection/sesion

No it is not. But your reply point me to the issue. There is a firewall between the two networks that isblocking Layer7 and we were seeing drops between the communication on port 1234 between ESXi hosts and the NSX Controllers.
