I have 1 distributed switch with 12 dvuplinks on it.
Although when planning my deployment I created a nice design to say port group1 should contain vmnic1 + vmnic3, when you look at port group 1 it actually shows dvuplinks which don't always match the numbering of the vmnics.
For example, I added vmnic1 and vmnic3 to my dvswitch and they show as dvuplink 1 and dvuplink 2. I then add vmnic2 to the switch and it shows as dvuplink3.
Is there an easy way to understand which dvuplink names will be assigned to which vmnics in advance?
I guess if I added all 12 vmnics at the same time it would match them up, but I can't be sure.
I noticed you can edit the dvuplink port name, do people do this to make more sense?
Is it possible to edit the order and align them as desired?
i mightve not understood your question correctly..but once the host is joined into the dvswitch you can manage what dvuplink a vmnic is attached to by going to Configuration>Networking and clicking Manage Physical Adapters.
From there you can attach/detach vmnics to the dvUplink you need.
ps. Yes, I've found that if i add a host with 8 pnics to my dvS of 8 uplinks it will matchup the vmnics with dvuplinnks( ie vmnic0>dvuplink1, vmnic1>dvuplink2). And yes, its confusing that vmnics start at '0' and uplinks start at '1'
