    Problem with Vcenter Server 5.5

    shiva075gowda Lurker

      Hi, I have some VMs hosted on shared ISCSI storage (not local datastore). I have configured both Management and ISCSI network on the same nic (vmnic0).

      If I try to add a portgroup created on vmnic1 to the VM, the ESX host completely hangs and have to reboot the Host itself.

       

       

      Is it like we should not have both Management and ISCSI network configured on the same NIC ?

       

       

      Thanks

          Able to nail down to a specific use case.

           

          1. Have ESX host with both Management and ISCSI network configured on the same NIC (vmnic0).

          2. A simple Ubuntu VM hosted on shared ISCSI storage.

          3. Have created two VLAN interfaces in Ubuntu machine (eth0.1805, eth0.1804).

          4. Attached one of the VLAN interface (eth0.1804) to a OVS bridge.

          5. Now, try to add any network to the VM from Vcenter Server, the ESX host hangs.

           

          If we have dedicated nic for ISCSI network, then we are facing this issue.

          Can anyone suggest what might have went wrong.
