Do you get this same exception if you try and add a vNIC to a VM with a greater hardware version than ESXi 5.1 compatibility?
We are having the same problem. The port group listing is not shown in the drop-down menu when configuring a network card for the virtual machine.
Currently our environment:
- HP Proliant ML350 Gen9 Server
- HPE Customized Image ESXi 6.5.0 version 6184.108.40.206.47 released on July 2017 and based on ESXi 6.5.0 Vmkernel Release Build 5310538
- Web Client version: 1.24.0
- Client compilation number: 7119706
On some occasions, when we create or edit groups of ports, the drop-down menu is displayed correctly, but at other times it stops working.
Is it possible to assign port groups to virtual machines from the command console, since we are receiving errors from the web client ?. It is very important for us to be able to solve this problem as soon as possible.
You need to create another port group in same switch without vmkernel interface.
