Invalid configuration for device '0' when reconnecting a VM to distributed switch on vCenter


Any one found an actual fix for this??

First of all I have to say there is a KB articles for this issue, but actually they offer a workaround not a fix. 

VMware says ESXi670-202004002 (Build 16075168) should fix it but then again they mention "Note: It is possible that you may still get this generic error Invalid configuration for device '0' even after upgrading to this or a later version"

The Issue:

When you disconnect and reconnect the network ( on a distributed switch)  of a running VM the error: Invalid configuration for device '0'  is thrown. When you change the network to anything else and back to the original network it works. 


It is a great help if there is a permanent fix for this issue.
