Half of the vms coming online after VMotion to the same destination host

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to vmotion a group of vms belonging to same subnet to same single destination host. Virtual center allows me to vmotion all of them( post vmotion i can see the console for all guest vms) but the problem is not all of the vms are coming back online(some of them do come online like normal) i.e not ping'able from outside and also from inside the VMs ia m not able to ping the default gateway as well.

Any clues..

Many Thanks,

Anuj

seems to be sorted should have checked the switches first.

turns out that 2 of the 4 Nics teamed for virtual machine traffic were not in the right VLAN and probably due to the default load balancing algorithm of route based on port ids the VMs with virtual nics getting attached to the NICS not configured in the right VLAN were not coming back online.

Rgds,

Hi,

    Check the VLAN tagging on the swtich to which ESX NICs are connected
