Locked out of vDS and service console

    I was setting up a lab system and was playing with private vlans. In doing so I seem to have locked myself out of all access to my vSphere hosts except by physical access to the console.

    I am running with two hosts. I have a vDS setup and my vCenter server is a VM. Everything was running ok until I stupidly applied a private VLAN to the portgroup I access the systems through. At that point I lost all access. I have looked and tried to remove the VLAN setting from the console but I am new to the vDS and dont seem to have a grasp on it. I understand why things 'broke' but now need to figure out how to get rid of the private VLAN setting to get things back to normal. Any suggestions?
