I have a couple of old ESXi hosts running 6.7.0 Update 3 (Build 19195723). They were connected to a vCenter, but as this was just my lab, I had a power failure, and now I'm unable to get my VMs up and running again. Or... They get powered on, and I can use the browser console to log in, but they don't have any network
The vCenter also has issues - simply not showing any hosts, but it has network as I can access it through browser:
The funny thing is I have one VM, which is working perfectly. An Ubuntu webserver. I have checked the network settings and port groups and all VMs have the same settings. On boot they stops here and waits:
Afterward simply no network.
I have also tried creating a new VM but no network. I have checked the ESXi host themselves, and they have the network, but nothing for the VMs. Except for the single working one...
Any ideas on what I can do? And just for info... Not the vmWare genius here 😉
