reg https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/1010652 this is not supported configuration
In first connection this initially worked, as I’d expected it to. However problems begin after approximately one minute, the host simply dropped offline. I could still ping it fine, and communicate with it using the standalone vCenter client. I could even reconnect it in vCenter however it would only last another minute or so before it dropped. The issue is with heartbeat between vCenter and ESXi.
I get 2 types of errors
- Disconnect every 1 min
- Host cannot synchronize
For troubleshooting you can use different article: Link
<serverIp>10.0.0.1</serverIp> directive to contain the WAN (outside) NAT address of the NAT router instead of the vCenter server IP.
Also add the following line:
<preserveServerIp>true</preserveServerIp> otherwise the IP you just entered will be overwritten.
Restart the vpxa management agents on the host with
The host should now be online within vCenter and should stay online!
