Nexus 1000v - Unable to ping VM's on separate VLAN

Hi,

I currently setup a Nexus 1000v lab with vCenter and ESXI host.  I've added the VSM with 2 VEM's.  I am able to reach the management VLAN (VLAN192) and any VM added to that same VLAN, but when I try to add a VM to my VM-Server VLAN (VLAN200), they can't reach anything outside that VLAN.  I have one uplink port-profile trunked and allowing both VLAN's through to adjacent 2960 switch, which is also set to trunk and native VLAN192.  Both VLAN's are allowed over that trunk.  I have two vEthernet port-profiles on the N1K for both VLAN's.

Also, the central switch is running Layer 3 with OSPF and have confirmed that the inter-vlan routing is working properly.

I am sure that something is missing, just not sure what......any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

(attached is the network diagram, n1k configs, and vDS vmnic setup)

So it seems I was looking beyond the physical limitations of my ESXi hosts and needed to allow multiple VLAN's through the NIC adapter.  Luckily for me this was a quicker fix than I imagined.  If you happen to have a supported Intel adapter, go to the link below and use the ANS application.
