  • 1.  VMNIC not taking DHCP

    Posted Mar 04, 2016 06:07 AM

    hello,

    We have 1 ESXi host 5.5

    1 Standard vSwitch > 1 Management Port > 1 VM network Port Group

    1 VMNIC > Connected to Physical Switch on VLAN 140

    2 VMs on same ESXi host

    Static IP is working is assigned from VLAN 140

    But when using DHCP > VM's nic says "Unidentified network"

    Please suggest.

    Thanks.

    while your VM is running with static IP, did you check that it's able to reach to the host where DHCP services are running?

    Network works;

    --> Static IP

    --> Dynamic DNS

    Network does not work;

    --> Dynamic IP

    --> Dynamic DNS

    I figured out. DHCP is not configured for that VLAN, so only static IP.
