Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Okay, so you have a Virutal Machine network portgroup called VM Network and New Port Group.

and you've created a new vSwitch.

What are you trying to do ?

The Defaults normally work okay, e.g. standard vSwitch and VM Network Portgroup, are you wanting to do something more adventurous ?

If you are willing to connect remotely I can share my id and password with you if not its not a problem. A person with your skills I think will not probably only 1-2 minutes to solve the problem.

This expert suggested creating a Gigs project.
Remove the virtual machine portgroup and remove the vSwitch, there are not required. e.g. reset to defaults.

I'm afraid all communications must be conducted through the forum, and not via remote access.

If you want someone to fix it, then I would recommend creating a Gig or Project here at EE.

Delete the vSwitch and Virtual Machine network you created ?

OR, you can connect to console, and select Reset to Defaults under Network ?

As a side note.  I would advise trying a different browser to add a new VM.  I just experienced the same issue and switching from FireFox to Chrome resolved the issue.  We are also running VMware ESXi 6.5
Due to network configuration I would have needed to recreate the virtual switches to allow proper connectivity so deleting and starting over wasn't the most desirable option.
