    ESX3 – Lost service console connectivity

    For a lot of reasons you could lose the connection to your ESX host. Now it cannot be configurated with the useĀ of virtualĀ centerĀ until this has been recreated.

    esxcfg-nics -l
    Gives an list of your physical nics

    esxcfg-vswitch -l
    esxcfg-vswitch -l > textfile.txt
    Gives an list of your virtual switch configuration. If you “pipe” it to a textfile it can be easily readed.

    esxcfg-vswitch -L vmnic6 vSwitch0
    In this example a physical nic is added to a vSwitch.

    The connection has now been recreated
