VMware virtual server with several virtual NICs connecting to different domains. All NIC are of the same type with the same drivers installed. One NIC is experiencing an issue. I've bounced the NIC and reinstall the drivers. When I ping the IP address assigned to it...I get request timed out, but I can ping the IP of what I believe is the gateway. The interface is on a flat network. I attempted to add the destination route to the systems' route table since it was not listed, but I'm getting error: "Either the interface index is wrong or the gateway does not lie on the same network in the interface table." The status of the NIC shows 0 sent packets, but have received packets.
I'm trying to determine if it is a bad NIC, something wrong with the port group, or the issue lies with the vswitch?
