One way that I know -  You can look at the MAC address on the vnic on UCS and do a listing of nics on ESXi Command Line and compare the macs and identify which is which.


Hope that helps

also I normally name my UCS vNIC/vHBAs to match what ESXi names them and then use a vNIC/vHBA placement policy to enforce the order so that I can guarantee they match up.


I use this naming convention


vmnic0-mgt-a

vmnic1-mgt-b


vmnic2-vmo-a

vmnic3-vmo-b


vmnic4-vms-a

vmnic5-vms-b


vmhba1-a

vmhba2-b

identify the interface based on MAC is the better way.
