    How to check which adapter is an active?

    OptimalDesign Lurker

      Hi, All

       

      I configured it as below; vmnic1 is an active and vmnic0 is an standby.

      # esxcli network vswitch standard policy failover get -v vSwitch0

         Load Balancing: srcport

         Network Failure Detection: link

         Notify Switches: true

         Failback: true

         Active Adapters: vmnic1

         Standby Adapters: vmnic0

         Unused Adapters:

       

      When the vmnic1(active adapter) down, the vmnic0 live up and acts as an active.

      That can be found via #esxtop + n

       

      ~ # esxtop

      Question)

      Beside GUI/ esxtop(+ n) command, is there any way to check current active adapter under A/S mode in vSwitch?

      command(s) or specific logs ?

       

      Thank you
