vSphere Troubleshooting Training Video Snippet #1 – How to Restore Network Connectivity to ESXi

by David Davis on January 3, 2011

My new vSphere Troubleshooting video training course comes out tomorrow (Tuesday, January 4th, 2011) and I am excited to release this sneak peek video snippet today. In the video below, you’ll learn how to restore management network connectivity to an ESXi host. The ESXi server in the video is using a distributed virtual switch (vDS) but the management interfaces can’t communicate on the network. In this 9 minute video, I will use the ESXi DCUI, the vSphere Client, and ESXi console CLI commands like esxcfg-vswitch and esxcfg-nics.

I hope that you enjoy the video and I hope that you will checkout my new 14 hour, 30 lesson vSphere Troubleshooting course from Train Signal. This course goes a long way in helping to prepare you for the VCAP-DCA as well as to help you “save the day” on your production virtual infrastructure!

Good stuff, love the snippet, and look forward to seeing more, this may have just convinced me to get this series as I have plenty to troubleshoot every day. Keep up the good work, love the videos.

Great video instruction David – I’ve enjoyed your articles on the Microsoft sites too – will you be creating a Train Signal video series for the new ISA namely the ForeFront Threat Management Gateway (TMG) and how this works well with the ForeFront clients? That would be really great !

Hi Steve,
Thanks for watching ! I appreciate your support!
Likely I won’t be creating any more training covering ISA or TMG but I know that Train Signal has this on their list and I hope that they will release a TMG course in the future.
I will pass your interest along to them.
I will soon be releasing more vSphere training aimed toward the VCAP and Performance Tuning.
Thanks again & all the best,
