Esxi host not allowing file copy after IP change
Posted on 2010-09-20
I have a newly built Esxi 4 host server - it picks up a valid dhcp address and gives itself a hostname of localhost.4d.... At this stage I can Fastscp to it and copy a file from another host or my PC to the local storage on the Host. When I change the IP address to a static address and reboot - I can still log into it using the VI Client and Fastscp and I can see all the local storage, but, I cannot copy any more files to it. I get an error of: Failed to get file 'nfc://conn:......etc Client error: NFC storage connection is unavailable...... Failed to create NFC download stream......
I have used the tech mode to get to the console and the host file shows the correct entry and the resolve file has the correct dns entries in it.
Any ideas what I can do to correct this - what has else altered with the change of IP address?
