    Recovery after nic failover

    Drewan99 Lurker

      I have an esxi 6.5 update 2 standalone server in a test lab.

      I can create a vswitch with two nics for failover. When one of the nics goes down, the failover works as it should….yaaaa.

      The problem is when the failed network ports becomes active again, the vm’s on that vswitch can no longer communicate with the network.  They can communicate with vm’s on that vswitch but not beyond. The only way to get it to work again is to remove the nic that failed from the vswitch. Once removed communication starts working again. I'm then able to add the restored nic to the vswitch without problem.The problem is reproducible and happens to any vswitch that has nic failover.


      Any Suggestions?
