VM can ping everything on it's own subnet... but not the default gateway (but everything else can)
Posted on 2016-10-20
So I have a VM, it can ping everything on it's own subnet, including stuff external to the esxi host. But it can't ping the default gateway (which is a fortigate 100d). The fortigate says it gets the ping and that it replies, but somehow this host is not getting the reply.
How could I packet capture at the esxi level to see if the reply is being delivered to the VM?
The VM's address is 192.168.1.58
in fortigate I might do something like
diag sniffer packet any 'icmp and host 192.168.1.58' 4
And it would list info about packets for that host.... can I do similar in CLI (or GUI) in esxi to see if esxi thinks it is handing the packet to the host?
Any of troubleshooting ideas?
Everything was fine and then this just happened randomly....
