VMware NSX6.2.1 host preparation not work


I install VMware 6.0U1b with two hosts.  Each host has two ethernet cards.  The first card is using VMware standard switch, second controller as VMware distributed switch.  I have create two cluster, each cluster only contain one host.  Installation of Vmware NSX manager and node controller does not have problem.  When I do the host preparation, after running a period of time, it says that "not ready".  I cannot find the vxlan.zip link in NSX manager (https://NSX-Manager-IP/bin/vdn/vibs-6.2.1/6.0/vxlan.zip).  May I know where is the path of vxlan.zip ?  How can I resolve this problem ?

The direct file path is https://nsxmanagerip/bin/vdn/vibs/6.0/vxlan.zip‌‌ for vSphere 6.

It reports error for NSX manager to get the vxlan.zip file.  What can I do ?

I apologize - it seems that the redirect no longer works in 6.2.1.  You can find the path to the vibs in the following file:

So, in my case, the vib can be downloaded at https://192.168.2.19/bin/vdn/vibs-6.2.1/6.0-3234748/vxlan.zip

That being said, I still recommend following the help documents at the blog I mentioned above to help troubleshoot why the hosts are failing to prepare properly.

One thing I ran into that might be helpful, can your ESX hosts resolve the DNS name of your NSX manager?
