Problems with VCenter Client

Jump to solution

Dear Community,

Obviously  I have made a sever mistake inside VCenter client. I wanted to configure networks and created a new virtual switch.

Until now I only had the standard switch vSwitch0, that was created during installation. Our host has 4 physical network adapters (vmnic 0,1,2,3). With the help of the IPs and MAC I saw that vmnic2 was used for accessing the VCenter. That was the reason why I didn't touch this adapter. I just wanted to move the other adapters to the newly created vSwitch. That was not possible, since these adapters were bound to vSwitch0. That was the reason why I have removed these adapters from vSwitch0. Unfortunately the connection to VCenter broke down immediately.

I cannot reach the VCenter and there is no ARP entry anymore.

What did I wrong and how can I solve the problem?

Greetings

You can log in to the Direct Console User Interface (DCUI) of the ESXi host via a keyboard and screen attached to the server or via iLO or other means. In the DCUI you can fix the network of the ESXi host so the vCenter Server will be able to connect to the ESXi host again.
