Asymetric routing with vCenter HA

Hi

I configured a second NIC for vCenter HA in my vcenter appliance. Since then, the vCenter Webservice was no longer available. After a little bit searching, i saw, that the answer from the vCenter is comming from the heartbeat network. This - becaus the client which is requesting the webservice, is also in the heartbeat network. - This is a little bit special , but the request may or may not go over a different interface out of the server than in - with defining a route on the vcenter, it works again, but it is a little bit strange, that the appliance is answering over a different NIC than the request is comming - see the picture

Has anyone made the same experiance? Any other solutions? VMware, open a call?vcenterHA.jpg

Hello,

Does not look like we have seen this before. Opening a support case would be the best route at this time. Please let me know the SR if you do.
