Welcoem to the Forums - You will need to create a vmkernel port enabled for vmotion and assigned the approriate vlan and a service console port assigned with its own vlan port - you will also need to make sure the port you are connecting to on the physical switch is configured as a trunk port so it can recognize the vlans -

I did that two port group

VMkernel port group with VLAN ID

Service Console port Group with different VLAN ID

and the physical Nic connected to physical switch and configure the physical port as trunk port

but after that I am trying to ping the Service console when connect to its VLAN but I couldn't ping it

and I don't know what the missing

Please provide your switch configuration for the port you are connecting to. Also, can you ping your default gateway? If not, is it a L3 switch interface (is it provisioned/configured), or a router (is it correctly attached to the VLAN with a defined IP on that network)?

Is your native vlan on your physical switch port the same as the vlan you assigned to the SC?
