I cannot ping my ESX servers after I plugged in all nics to SAN switches.
Posted on 2011-02-15
I have CAT6 cable from my dedicated SAN switches going to three ESX/i servers that each have 8 nic ports. On the ESX server, I have one nic going to one switch and the next to the second switch (crossing them back and forth to both SAN Switches. I have all eight nics plugged in from all three esx servers. Now, when I had my esx servers connected to a little 5 port switch that connects into my LAN, I could ping the esx servers. Now when their connected to my switchs, which is going to my SAN, I can not ping my esx servers.
My SAN is all functioning and storage was all allocated and configured, I just cant get to ESX server ever since I connected all nics (8) from each esx server to SAN switchs?
