    ESXi 6.5U3 - Management Network (ethernet) not available if you change physical switches

    JansenB Lurker

      I've noticed this on multiple installations on different hardware.

       

      I have a fresh install of Vmware Esxi 6.5 U3.

       

      After inital testing, I move the phsyical network cable thats plugged into a single unteamed nic used by the Management Network from one switch to another. Now there is no netowkr connectivity. It does not matter if I try DHCP or static assignment, there is no connectivity... ICMP fails etc.

       

      Whats the deal here.. is there a security feature that if the primary Management network NIC is changed, that it just cuts off access?

       

      Does anyone know how to resolve this... I've done lots of searching and cant really find anything.
