If a host is associated with a distributed switch, you can migrate VMkernel adapters from the distributed to a standard switch.

For details about creating VMkernel adapters on a vSphere distributed switch, see Create a VMkernel Adapter on a vSphere Distributed Switch.

Verify that the destination standard switch has at least one physical NIC.

Click Migrate a VMkernel adapter.

5

On the Select VMkernel network adapter page, select the virtual network adapter to migrate to the standard switch from the list.

6

On the Configure settings page, edit the Network Label and VLAN ID for the network adapter.

7

Review the migration details on the Ready to complete page and click Finish.

Click Back to edit settings.
