I'm testing VMware ESXi 6.7 update 1, I tested ver 6.5 update 2 and I've found the same freak.
I'm using the hypervisor embedded client (no vSphere).
It works all regularly but I have a problem to setting iSCSI.
- I set 2 switches:
- I set up 2 VMkernel NICs and the 2 related port groups named iSCSI ...
vmk1 - iSCSI1, ok
vmk2 - iSCSI2, ok
- I added the vmnic2 and vmnic3 to vSwitch1, ok.
- I tried to add the same nic (vmnic2 and vmnic3) to vSwitch2, and the error message is: "Can not add up - There are no physical adapters to attach to this visrtual switch."
- I tried from SSH console but without success:
esxcli network vswitch standard uplink add --uplink-name=vmnic2 --vswitch-name=vSwitch2
The VMware documentation for version 6.7 describes the same procedure (see the attached doc).
I have an installation that's using VmWare hypervisor 5.0 with the same configuration and it works.
Where is my mistake?
Or you can not configure iSCSI bindings from the embedded client
