I am trying to install the VEM on the ESX server that holds the VSM. I manually installed the VEM but it didnt register with the VSM. A vemcmd sh card info shows that the control and packet vlans are set to 0 instead of the vlans we have assigned (31/32). Is there a way that I can manually set these?
The control/packet vlan information will be pushed into the host by vCenter when you add the host to N1K dvs on vCenter. Were you able to add the host to N1K dvs? If you are able to add, check the ouput of the following command on VEM
vemcmd show profile
If you don't see your control/packet vlans there, you might have forgotten to mention these as system vlans in uplink profile you created on N1K VSM.
