Nexus5548P and ESxi communication issue

Hi Guys,

I have a Cisco C210M2 server connected to the nexus switch directly. 2 ports are configured for port channeling and vpc.

On the Server I installed ESXi and created a vSwitch and a host with an IP of

I have a storage connected to the pair of Nx switch and configured for PC and vPC. On the storage I have configured the IP on the same range

I was not able to ping between the IP address. I have checked that the portchannel is up and runing and vPC status shows as up.

Baically not a networkin guy, I googled a lot and came across lldp.

If I did a sh lldp entry , I can see the storge ports there not the server ports.

On the sh lldp dcbx interface eth1/xx I cannot see any peer information , where as on the other ports I can see the peer information.

The server ports are 1G ports and I configured the speed to 1000 on the nexus , where as the storage ports and 10G.

Any help wil be appreciated, I can provide more details if required.

Nexus5548P and ESxi communication issue


Can you verify the VLAN configuration on switch interfaces and ESXi host ?

SSH into ESXi host and provide the output of  " esxcfg-vswitch -l "

From N5K switch,

sh run int port-channel ID
