Unfortunately, there is no other workaround, unless you can migrate the VMs off those hosts, and then fix the VLANs on them. You don’t need to remove the whole network, only the VLAN on the affected hosts. You would have to do this on the command line using ‘xe vlan-destroy’ and ‘xe vlan-create’ (or just ‘xe vlan-destroy’ and restart the toolstack).


However, the issue is purely cosmetic: the VLANs _are_ functional, but the link state is reported wrongly. You could just ignore the link state of those VLANs, and instead look at the link state of the physical interfaces there are running on top of.

I've got one question regarding this



I've got a pool of 4 servers with some vlan, and today have added two more servers. Those networks appear as "Partially connected" in the "Networking" tab of the pool, and "Unknown" in the two new servers.

I've been able to remove and create some of the networks, as there were only a few services running on them, but one of the networks is used in a large amount of VMs, so removing and creating that network is not a chance... Is there another workaround for this issue?



Thanks and kind regards
