Hi Team

I am having following error
checking existing VMs
Deployement Started
[ERROR] IP Assignment or Accessible Failed
Testing failed, For details plase Find Logs in /opt/autamation/logs

PING 172.18.3.26 (172.18.3.26) 56(84) bytes of data.
From 172.18.2.1 icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable

Can you please help

ESXI-MGMT and VSAN are configured as LAG interfaces, so i need to make any change for same.

did you specify the same portgroup for guest VMs which assigned to HCIBench "VM Network"? if you did, did you pass pre-validation? thinking your underlying vlan has connectivity issue.

This error is usually a good indicator there is an underlying network problem. HCIBench does not require anything other than reliable network(s) with unrestricted communication between the hosts. Using LAG shouldn't be a problem and this would be completely transparent to HCIBench. However, LAGs introduce additional complexity where a mis-configuration could result in intermittent problems.

- Are all the test VM unreachable, or only a subset? If it's a subset, is there a pattern (host, rack, ...)?
- Create a pair of VM to test connectivity between every pair of hosts on the portrgoups used by HCIBench. If may be necessary to use different IP and MAC addressed depending on the LAG hash algorithm.
