Hi jvm2016,

As mauricioamorim said, ESXi host joins the VNI (say 5000) in the following two cases:

  1. Host has a VM connected to a logical switch with that VNI (5000).
  2. Or host has a VM which is connected to a different logical switch (VNI 5001), but needs to talk to a VM running on another host connected to that VNI (5000).

If none of the above is true, you won't see this ESXi host in VTEP table for that VNI.

Do you have VMs connected to logical switches in every host?
