Thank you for your question. Which model of device are you adding? Typically this is caused by the name of the distributed virtual switch being different on one of the nodes.

If this issue occurred, please run the below command to obtain all the node's information.

curl -k -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X POST -u 
    --unix-socket /var/lib/vxrail/nginx/socket/nginx.sock -d '{"query":"query {cluster(moid : \"
    \") {host{name hardware{systemInfo{serialNumber}}config{virtualNicManagerInfo{netConfig{nicType selectedVnic}}network{proxySwitch{dvsUuid dvsName hostLag{lagKey lagName uplinkPort{key value}}spec{backing{pnicSpec{pnicDevice uplinkPortKey uplinkPortgroupKey}}}uplinkPort{key value}}}}configManager{networkSystem{networkInfo{netStackInstance{name ipRouteConfig{defaultGateway}}}networkConfig{vnic{device spec{ip{ipAddress subnetMask}distributedVirtualPort{portgroupKey}}}}}}} network{moid name backingType config{key type defaultPortConfig{vlan{vlanId}uplinkTeamingPolicy{uplinkPortOrder{activeUplinkPort standbyUplinkPort inherited}}}distributedVirtualSwitch{name moid}}}}}", "variables":null,"operationName":null}'

In the command, please replace the value with the below interpretation​​​​​.

  • The value of , , should be replaced based on the running cluster information.
  • The " " is cluster MoRef ID: vc_mob/content/rootFolder/childEntity/hostFolder/childEntity(domain-xx)
  • The " , " is VxRail Manager's root credential

This command displays all the cluster information in JSON format.

Filter the contents of the output, and compare dvsName value of the hosts to identify the host with different DVS name with other hosts. (Even dvsUuid values of the hosts are the same. )  

Correct DVS name of the host in vCenter.


If that doesn’t work you may also need to update SSL certificates.



Let us know if you have any additional questions.

Thank you for your quick response. There were three vxrial nodes in one cluster and the vxrial version was 4.07 p 570s. Two new p 670s vxrial nodes were purchased for expansion. I have upgraded all vxrail version to 7.03 One node has successfully joined the cluster. I tried to join the second node and it failed to pass. Thank
