How to Maxtang’s NX 6412 NUC add to vDS? Fix script /etc/rc.local.d/local.sh

How to fix network after adding to vDS. When you add NX6412 to vDS and reboot ESXi. I don’t have uplink for vDS. You could check it with:

# esxcfg-vswitch -l
DVS Name         Num Ports   Used Ports  Configured Ports  MTU     Uplinks
vDS              2560        6           512               9000    vusb0
--cut
  DVPort ID                               In Use      Client
  468                                     0           
  469                                     0
  470                                     0
  471                                     0

We will have to note DVPort ID 468 – example. vDS is name of your vDS switch.

esxcfg-vswitch -P vusb0 -V 468 vDS

It is necessary add it to /etc/rc.local.d/local.sh before exit 0. You could have similar script from source Persisting USB NIC Bindings

vusb0_status=$(esxcli network nic get -n vusb0 | grep 'Link Status' | awk '{print $NF}')
count=0
while [[ $count -lt 20 && "${vusb0_status}" != "Up" ]]
do
    sleep 10
    count=$(( $count + 1 ))
    vusb0_status=$(esxcli network nic get -n vusb0 | grep 'Link Status' | awk '{print $NF}')
done

esxcfg-vswitch -R
esxcfg-vswitch -P vusb0 -V 468 vDS

exit 0
