Hi Experts,

I made some changes on a vm with adding a NIC.
And now I cannot use the console anymore.
Do you know how to solve it ?

I have reboted the vcenter and some other vm´s.
And the added nic I already removed.

usually firewall issues cause console issues?

can you resolve the VM correctly via fqdn and reverse dns?

You added a single nic to one VM, and now the console is broken on all VMs?

it was a second nic to one vm, then all was stuck.
later on I removed the second nic.

No the console is not working yet.

have you checked from vSphere Web Client and vSphere Client.

You could try restarting networking agents on the ESXi server.
