Cisco Virtual Wireless Controller cannot see access points

Last Modified: 2019-12-29
I just upgrade from ESX 4.5 to 6.7 and the controller can not longer see the access points. There have been some changes in ESX for the interfaces, but for some reason it is not working. (I can see one new difference is that the switch and the port can be configured for Promiscuous mode, I tried both but neither work)

Virtual Switch:
1. Allow promiscuous mode Yes
2. Allow forged transmits Yes
3. Allow MAC changes      Yes

Data Port:
1. VLAN ID: 4095
2. Allow promiscuous mode Yes
3. Allow forged transmits Yes
4. Allow MAC changes Yes

Service Port
1. VLAN ID: 0
2. Allow promiscuous mode No
3. Allow forged transmits No
4. Allow MAC changes No

Switch Config:
interface GigabitEthernet0/1
 description trunked port
 switchport trunk native vlan 30
 switchport trunk allowed vlan 21,30,31,40,41
 switchport mode trunk
 spanning-tree bpdufilter enable
 ip dhcp snooping trust
