Ping from a specific VMKernel Port to test Connectivity


If you need to test connectivity between two VMKernel ports VMK’s you can use the following command:

# vmkping -I vmk2 <Destination IP>

If you have seperate IP stacks for different types of VMkernel ports you need to add this stack name to the command too:

# vmkping -I vmk2 -S <IP Stack Name> <Destination IP>
