This setup is in Workstation version 16.1.0 build-17198959

vCenter version VMware-vCenter-Server-Appliance-6.7.0.45000-16708996_OVF10 (6.7 U3 J)

ESXi version VMware-VMvisor-Installer-201912001-15160138.x86_64

I'm facing an issue with vCenter timing out when adding vmnics to DVSwitch. The vmnics are not assigned to vSwitch. I create VMKernel adapters in DVswitch, then attach the vmnics to DVSwitch. I did the same for Management ports, and they worked fine. The moment I start the migration for the remaining vmnics, after sometime has passed vCenter shows as reconnecting https://i.ibb.co/19cXJgV/v-Center-Reconnecting.png.

The vpxd.log shows the following.

Firewall has nothing blocked, all ports and protocols are open. I don't know if this is related to the NTP time sync issue I'm facing which is only affecting the vCenter Appliance, ESXi sync from the same firewall only that vCenter is 6 hours ahead while ESXi are syncing fine, not sure what is going on. I came to know this could be due to vCenter being part of a domain, my vCenter is not part of any domain, the ESXi are part of a Windows Domain.

  • Just something I noticed, I'm able to assign vmnics to DVSwitch the 1st time I log into vCenter, and thats the only time I can move the vmnics once I try to move them after that they just time out, not sure whats causing this. – tryllz May 5 at 21:26
