I'm recently facing a situation with a ESXi vSwitch and I'm not sure on how to start to troubleshoot this, we have a host with 4 NICS and 2 vSwitchs; vSwitch1(NIC1) and vSwitch2(NIC2-4), I have the WAN configured on vSwitch1 and vSwitch2 is just for LAN usage, however I have another blade Server connected directly on the vSwitch2 and it is working just fine, but once I plug a NAS drive on vSwitch2 it knocks off the blade server meaning that I can not ping it anymore and if I unplug the blade server then the NAS starts to work just fine, so it is one of the other, my intent is to use vSwitch2 for lan devices but as you can see I'm having a bit of problem. Any ideas?
