Network interfaces used for Virtual SAN are not ready (2058521)

Details

When the VMkernel adapter that your ESXi host uses for Virtual SAN is not ready you receive an event with the following description:

vmknic vmkX that is currently configured to be used with VSAN doesn't have an IP address yet. There are no other active network configuration and therefore the VSAN node doesn't have network connectivity.

Example

This event might occur when the VMkernel adapter does not have a proper IP address.

Impact

The ESXi host might not be able to join an existing Virtual SAN cluster or form a new cluster with other hosts.

Solution

  • If using DHCP, make sure that the DHCP server is active and the host can get a valid IP address.
  • Configure additional interfaces to maintain redundancy of network connection.

For more information, see the Troubleshooting Networking section in the vSphere Troubleshooting documentation.
