vNetwork Distributed Switch is not visible

Hello,

I'm using ESXi 6.5.0 build 4887370, vSphere Client 6.0.0 build 2502222 and VSphere Web client.

I can use and configure vSwitch on both vSphere Client and Web Client without errors or problems.

Instead I've misconfigurations because I can't see dSwitch configuration on both vSphere Client and Web Client. I'm following these guidelines:

Create a vSphere Distributed Switch

Please how can I enable dSwitch in my ESXi in order to see it on both vSphere Client and Web Client?

Thanks,

Andrea

Are you using vCenter here? I can't tell from your message when you say "vSphere web client" if you mean the ESXi embedded host client (HTML5) or one of the web-based clients on vCenter.

I'm not using vCenter. Sorry, with vSphere web Client I mean ESXi embedded host client.

Is it possible to use dSwitch without vCenter?

Thanks,

Andrea

No, there is no such thing as a Distributed Switch (vDS) without vCenter Server. The only thing you can use is Standard Switch (vSS).
