Lost connectivity to ESXi 5.1 host

We are running on esxi 5.1 and vsphere 5.5.

I made a mistake and somehow looks like I removed physical switch. Since then the hos connection is lost. there are no VMs on it.

I connected to the DCUI via console trying to fix the network but could not get it to work.

On the Network restore option both restore standard Switch and Restore vDS is grayed out/disabled. Please see the attached pics

How do I restore the Standard switch or vDS?

Did you remove physical switch or SVS/DVS ?

Are you using N1K ? (nexus 1000).

try to give IP by command line then try to ping

Might be faster to reinstall this and set up a standard switch then as you have no vms on it..add back to VC and add back to the dvs
