You will need to SSH into the host to perform these commands.
This is the basic syntax
vmkping -4 -d -I <vmk-number> -s <packet-size> <address>
- This is an example using vmk3 and vmk4, which we will assume is used for storage.
- We will use a packet size of 8400 bytes (can’t use 9000 b/c there won’t be enough room to allow for IP overhead)
- We will assume 192.168.1.10 is the address of the storage interface
vmkping -4 -d -I vmk3 -s 8400 192.168.1.10 vmkping -4 -d -I vmk4 -s 8400 192.168.1.10
- Make sure you test all interfaces from the host, against all hosted ip addresses on the storage
