Check the CDP for the vmnic and compare with other vmnic -> validate the configuration on physical switch with other vmnic.
I think but am not sure that this may appear if the NIC never observed or used any traffic.
What version is that igbn driver?
how many network cards do you have on one host?
Show CDP Nei on the switch returns nothing for that port.
The uplink has been active previously however not for days so suspect anything which would have been listed here has long since aged out.
Other ports on the switch do list device IDs as expected.
running esxcli network ip neighbor list on the host side lists neighbors correctly for all other vmknics but nothing under that uplink.
I have 2x cards per host, all hosts are the same.
1x 2 port card, and 1x 4 port card.
Both are Intel I350, the 2 port being LOM, the 4 port being added.
This is as standard with the Fujitsu OEM build.
OK, so in a completely unrelated site / cluster, I have now seen the same issue on ESXi 5.5 host with the same I350 4x port cards.
Has anyone else seen this issue?
Simply downing and upping the port with esxcli resolved the issue briefly, for a day to a week, then the issue returns...
I also still have this issue remaining on the original cluster.
I have tickets open with both VMware and Fujitsu however neither are particularly interested or progressing well...
Same issue .. EXACT issue here
with 6.5.0 5969303
fujitsu rx2510 M2
any news ?
Same issus and trouble...
Same HP procurve
Any news about a solution ?
I have had issues like this before. It is usually a result of not having the port on the physical network switch enabled with the correct vlans.
I did see you mention
If i vmotion the VM to another host its fine.
What VM are you referring to? The VCSA Appiliance? Any VM?
with VMware ESXi, 6.7.0, 10764712
FUJITSU PRIMERGY RX2530 M2
and Intel Corporation I350 Gigabit Network Connection
Does anyone have a solution?
So, seems to me the problem is :
Fujitsu rx + intel i350 + >esxi 6.5.0
In other situations i discovered bugs and problems in firmwares or hardware, and its very dificult to translate to fabricant....
But if every single one of us.. open a ticket.. and redirect to this post... it will help...
the problem appears one time ( only ) after restart... if i change vmnic affected and put out of vswitch. never appears again.. until i restart or the servers power off and on.
Seems to me the network card in system is unable to maintain 4 ports workings.. and randomly one of the four ports ( one diferent every time ) is affected by this use.
