UDA 1.4 and the service console network

UDA 1.4 might not correctly set the right NIC for your service console network. This is by design, and the cause is the difference between the way Anaconda Install and the ESX vmkernel enumerate devices.

UDA 1.4 might not correctly set the right NIC for your Service Console network. This is by design, and the cause is the difference between the way Anaconda Install and the ESX vmkernel enumerate devices. The best way to assign the right is by using the kickstart %post section.

You can remove the NIC for the Service Console with:

esxcfg-vswitch -U vmnic0 vSwitch0

and assign your preferred NIC with

esxcfg-vswitch -L vmnic5 vSwitch0

Note:
The esxcfg command is case-sensitive. So -L and -U are in UPPER-CASE.
