Re: Vspex blue deployment

If it's through an SFP+ port.  Make sure you are using compatible SFP's.

Re: Vspex blue deployment

TOR is just a label for the switch/switches connected to VxRail/VSPEX Blue. You can use any switch as soon as the network requirements are met:

     - IPv6 Multicast enabled on Management VLAN

     - IPv4 Multicast enabled on vSAN VLAN

     - The ports connected to VxRail allow all VLANs: Management, vSAN, vMotion + VM VLANs.

Connect the "Management PC" to a an access port with Management VLAN. Assign additional IP from VxRailManager subnet: for example 192.168.10.199 and then you should be able to access VxRailManager VM.

If the management VLAN is tagged, you need to configure all Nodes. Follow the installation procedure.
