I am trying to migrate my Distributed Switch Version4 from my current vCenter 5.5U3 to my new vCenter 6.5.
The process I perform is to export them in the vCenter 5.5U3 port groups and the distributed switch to a file.
Import that file into the new vcenter 6.5.
This task displays an error:
Import entity task did not return the switch refence!
Could someone help me with this task?
You probably need to upgrade your dVS from 4 to 5 or 5.5
vCenter 6.5 does not support dVS below ver 5.0
Thanks for answering mikejtucker.
Update the version to 5.5 vSd and continue the problem.
Now in the new vCenter I have mounted a new switch distributed with the same port group, called in different ways to identify them and VLANs alike.
I disconnect 1 Host with 1VM from the old vCenter and connect it to the new vCenter.
I add the Host to the new vCenter and migrate the Uplink, the port group and MV to the new Port Group.
I eliminate the old distributed switch belonging to the old vCenter.
I ping VM, vmKernel. But answers and loses connection costantly.
Can anyone help me with this problem, or some alternative solution?
