lost all connectivity to vmware console and vms

Hi Guys,

Im desperate here, i messed around with the vswitches on the console and the whole thing froze, kicked me out and now I have lost complete connectivity to the vmware console.
Somehow I interconnecting two of the physical switch which were running on two seperate networks. Ive rebooted, im not sure what to do.

Can anyone help me?

The important one is the console, fix it first by trying below command, use your own ip add/subnet mask
esxcfg-vswif vswif0 -i 192.168.1.2 -n 255.255.255.0
you can reconfigure vswitch for vms later, dont worry too much about this, as long as you have the connection to the service console, should be fine

sorry just want to be clear, are you able to look at the config at the console directly? (monitor attached to the server)
this can happen if you accidentally changed the ip add of the sc

You could connect to the hosts using the VIClient and correct the VM vswitches.
If the vswitch for the hosts been altered, then console access would be required.

If you now the correct configuration and you don't have many hosts it may be easier to re-install ESX hosts if you lost connection to the console (usually misconfiguring  vswitch0) and if you don't have any other console to connect to.
