VM Guest Not Getting A Network Connection On New VLAN
Posted on 2011-05-10
I have a VM environment running and a Cisco UCS with various different VLANs on it, all working. The VM environment has a virtual switch and a Cisco Nexus v1000. I have built the VLAN and spanned it out to the UCS and a test switch elsewhere. I have plugged a physical machine into a switch that has the VLAN spanned to it and was able to obtain a DHCP address form the scope I built so I know that it is working. I have added the VLAN on the correct server on the UCS and allowed its NICs to see it. I then went to VCenter and added the new port group to the vswitch, being we are not using the v1000 on this host, and configured the port group with the appropriate VLAN ID and Network Label. Finally I went to the Guest and assigned it to the new network label, yet the guest will only get limited or no network connectivity. I know I have to be missing something, we have other VLANs on this Host that work just fine with its Guests and they are dynamic as well. Any help is appreciated.
