I have 2 network services and management
4 physical esxi
2 for the management and the others for the services
each network is connected by a normal switch and the networks is isolated . it's not a routing
i have 2 questions
1- i can't ping the services VMS from a physical machine how is connected to the services network and before installing NSX i could ping it
is it normal ? and how i can ping it. i must install the edge nsx ??
2- i configured a logical switch but when i attached VMS to this LS the ping is failed why ?
Thank you very much
Maybe you can give us more detailed information you have (topology diagram are prefered if you had)
- Can you provide detailed information about your server (NIC, CPU, RAM, Type)
- So you have 4, 2 for Mgmt, and the rest for the compute?
- How many physical switch you have?
- "Isolated". Are you talking about different VLAN / subnet?
- Using standart switch or distribution switch?
- Is it for Lab or production?
For question, what VMS are stand for? Virtual Machine Services?
Thank you for your response
the work is for a lab
i use esxi 5.5 and nsx 6.1.4
and 4 physical machines
i have 2 sub net 192.168.0.0/24 and 192.168.10.0/24
i use 2 physical switch each one for 1 sub net but the switches are not connected
the all of esxi are connected to the 2 sub net with 2 pnic
1 VDS for the cluster
the vms are simply windows.iso just for simulate clients network
i have 4 windows vms
vm1 and vm 2 in esxi 3
vm3 and vm4 in esxi 4
vm1 and vm 3 in the network (10.1.0.0/24) connected to logical switch 1
vm2 in esxi 3 and vm 4 in esxi 4 connected to LS2 (10.2.0.0/24)
16GB in each machine
i use windows server 2012 r2 for AD and DNS
if the vms are connected to service port Group the ping work
the ping fails if i connect VMS to LS
