VMware NSX Networking


All VMs on the affected host that are connected to portgroups of the NVDS or VDS will not be able to send or receive network traffic


VMware NSX-T Data Center 2.5.x
VMware NSX-T Data Center 3.x
VMware NSX-T Data Center
VMware NSX-T Data Center 2.x


This issue occurs as during an NSX upgrade, the configuration for the vSwitch is not enabled correctly.


This is a known issue affecting VMware NSX-T Data Center 2.x and 3.x there is no resolution at this time

To work around this issue, confirm that the switch is disabled by running the command 'net-dvs -l' and look for the com.vmware.vswitch.disabled property. If it exist and is set to true, then the switch is affected.

-- esxcfg-vswitch -l
This will list all the switches on the host.  This command will provide the name of the switch

-- net-dvs -s "com.vmware.vswitch.disabled=false" -p hostPropList <<switch name>>

-- Recommended option: Call NSX API to update the transport node configuration to the host
   /api/v1/transport-nodes/<TN uuid>?action=resync_host_config
TN UUID is the transport node UUID.
