VMware ESX/ESXi command line reference on vDS Distributed Switch and vSwitch

Remove a PHY NIC from an UpLink in a vDS at the command line:

esxcfg-vswitch --list : Create a listing needed to get the reference for a vmnic's PortID#.

esxcfg-vswitch -V <vmnics PortID#> -Q <vmnic> <NAME of virtual Distributed Switch as it appears in vCenter inventory>

# esxcfg-vswitch -V 577 -Q vmnic1 NET2-N1K-VDS

Delete a Physical NIC from a standard virtual Switch on a Host:

This occurs any time the VSM cannot communicate with the VEM. Are you using L2 or L3 deployment? I resolved a lot of niggly issues once I moved to L3.


Does the VSM see the redundant VSM and all the VEMs as installed modules?
