    vRSLCM will not deploy VMs to Portgroups with ephemeral binding

    marsherian Novice

      I have a vdSwitch on which I have a port-group that all my management VMs connect to:

      General
      NameMGMT-VM
      Port bindingEphemeral - no binding
      Number of ports14
      Network resource pool(default)

       

       

       

      The infrastructure check:

      Available free port check for port group in the given vCenter, data center and cluster.MGMT-VM (static)Check if free port is available in the given vCenter, data center and cluster.

       

      fails when that portgroup is selected but works when this one is:

      General
      NameMGMT-VM (static)
      Port bindingStatic binding
      Port allocationElastic
      Number of ports8
      Network resource pool(default)

          I faced the exact same issue when I was trying to deploy a distributed vROPS in my environment. Pre-check was failing complaining about no free ports available. As a workaround I created a new dvPortgroup and placed it in same VLAN in which my other dvPortgroup was and updated the infrastructure details with name of new portgroup and deployment went fine afterwards.

           

          But I am curious to know that if this has been reported to VMware yet or not.

           

          When I enquired about why we are using the Ephemeral binding, I came to know that environment was provisioned via VVD and this is a prerequisite. Since many customers adopted using VVD for automated deployment of SDDC, ephemeral restriction in vRLCM doesn't make sense.

          Please consider marking this answer "correct" or "helpful" if you think your query have been answered correctly.

            Absolutely agree, the VVD violation is a bit hilarious
