New VLAN not communicating with Cisco

This post was originally published on this site

So, brand new to VSphere and having an issue. I’m usually the cisco guy but just getting into VMware.


I built out a new VLAN on a catalyst switch and got it up and running. After the issue started I even opened up a cisco TAC case so they could verify my design and build.


Issue is the switch is sending out arp requests but vsphere is not responding. In Vsphere the IP is set on the new server with correct IP and subnet and gateway. Connected the host with the correct VLAN. Only indication of a problem is the physical adapter does not see the VLAN or subnet…well and the server shows no internet connection.
