vCP can't communicate with vFPC

‎07-17-2019 03:27 AM

Hello,

 

I'm running vmx-bundle-esxi-17.3R3.10 on VMware Workstation PRO 12, and I can't make vpc to communicate with vfpc.

Both of them are imported in GNS3 and when I connect them I get an error on vfpc, and after a while vfpc reboots itself.

I have tried to connect them directly in vmware, I have tried in GNS in many ways, but no success.

 

Config of vcp machine:

This is the error I get when I try to connect them:

Attach of the config present on vpc:

----

root@vMX1_vpc> show configuration | display set

set interfaces fxp0 unit 0 family inet address 192.168.98.200/24

Can anyone help me on this?

 

Best Regards,

Hi,

 

We dont support vmware workstation, not sure how it will work and side effects of running vMX on workstation.. 

you need to have minimum of 3vCPU's configured for vFP for Litemode. So can you make those changes.below link will provide mimimum requirements for vMX..

 Also make sure promiscus mode is enabled for vSwitch used for connecting vCP & vFP.

Hi, 

 

Thanks for your response, but it wasn't helpfull.

In VMware Workstation I didn't find the vSwitch and that promiscus mode.

I also increased the resources and still the same error.
