Thanks, Jonathan. Utilizing your feedback, and after a discussion and session with Vishal in support, it turns out that our method was correct. I just needed to hear it from an expert before running the risk of locking myself out. I disabled the rollback and used the same process I'd...

RE: vSphereAMA - Moving vSwitch to DVswitch with Single Uplink

Hello Zac, Although this is a lab environment, this method is not recommended as it is an expected behavior in case of the single NIC. It is recommended to migrate the vCenter to another host and move the host to dvs. There are high chances of locking out of GUI, if the rollback is disabled....

vSphereAMA - Moving vSwitch to DVswitch with Single Uplink

We are setting up a small temporary lab with a single host vSphere environment on a hosted bare metal server. VCSA resides on the host it is controlling, and because it is a hosted solution we do not have direct access to, or control over, the physical NIC cabling. The host is currently deployed...
