Unable to add Network Adapter to Systems

Brand new ESXI 6.7 build finally got everything built up and configured for the new rack but when I went to create a new VM everything goes perfectly until I get to the hardware part of the wizard where it shows the Network Adapter 1 field as blank. If I try to delete the network adapter and readd it I get the error listed below. This is happening on both ESXI servers I built.

Troubleshooting.

Tried 3 different browsers

Deleted the VM and recreated it.

Restarted the server.

Created new test-switch, assigned it a test portgroup. Still no dice.

Other Notes:

I know that the NIC cards are working fine because I have ISCSI setup and working fine on the first port and second port is working with trunked management and general network communication.

Cause: TypeError: Cannot read property 'value' of undefined

Version: 1.25.0

Build: 7872652

ESXi: 6.7.0

It's a bug in the ESXi embedded host client. Update it to the most current version with the one provided here.

I have the same issue, blank network adapter on VM creation in ESXI 6.7.

Which are the correct steps to have this form listed with available options?

why do you work with the Host Client when you have a vCenter with Web and vSphere Client around?

Are you sure that this Host have already created a VM Portgroup? (Yes normaly there is a default one which can be deleted)

If you work with a vSS you can easily edit the *.vmx because this kind of PGs are referred by their name within the *.vmx. A "esxcfg-vswitch -l" will show all PGs. After edit the *.vmx just start the VM from command line rather than Host Client.

What I am trying to do, is to deploy the VCenter Server 6.7 in a new environment.

I created the VM Portgroup from scratch, since I deleted the default one. It's possible i am assigning it to the wrong VSwitch or setting the wrong configuration?

My environment is:

Internal SWITCH for esxi hosts - qnap communication (192.168.7.x) - VMOTION, ISCSI...

Management VSWITCH for Management Interface (192.168.2.x)

https://www.screencast.com/t/WSU5rK7OlUdY

Network adapter is blank.

Struggling with VSWITCH and PORT GROUPS I could have it available, but now it's not anymore.

I cannot find the right way to set it up.

Thanks a lot for your support!
