Let’s Remove a VMkernel Management Adapter from Distributed Switch

Hello Guys! Today we are not going to do configuration but today we will remove a configuration according to our needs etc. etc. So let’s think we have to remove / erase vmkernel adapter from distribution switch to create another new one!

Our config needs to be deleted from “vmk0” before we do that, we should not forget vmkernel IP  will be removed also!

Best way to assigning the old IP address to new management network that will help to get connected again back to control / management panel. This is such an important subject for DNS records and Back up plans so please do pay attention to this part. If you run this command,

you can list vmk ports esxcli network vswitch dvs vmware list and after that

you can run this command to delete it esxcli network ip interface remove –interface-name=vmk0

Thank you guys! If you have any question please let me know!
