    Cannot ping VMs on different ESXi hosts

    abhisheksha Novice



      I'm running a nested NSX homelab on vCloud Director. I've completed all the installation, and host preparation as you'll see from the images below. I'm trying to ping between 2 VMs that are connected to the same VNI. These VMs are on different hosts. The ping fails when they're on different hosts. When they're on the same host, I'm able to ping, indicating that there is something wrong on the VTEPs. Can you please have a look at the config below and let me know what is it that I'm doing wrong?


      Many thanks for your help!


      All the ESXi hosts are connected to MGMT_NW on VCD.
