Hey all -
We removed 2 nodes from 1 cluster and want to add them to another. We disconnected from vCenter and then removed them from the cluster using PE. When they were relocated to the new location, the vlan is the same and they could keep their same IP addresses, but the new cluster could not see them. It sounds like the customer had configured Distributed switches on the old cluster. Do I need to undo some of that networking to see the hosts? Would bare metal foundation be a better option and put AHV on the nodes? That is our next route, but I still think there is a problem with the network configured in ESX even for that. Is there any documentation around undoing the vmware networking for bare metal? With factory nodes, I would have just added them to the same vlan and assigned IPs using crashcart and then the cluster should have seen them.
