vMotion fail Nested Esxi Enviorment

When Nesting ESXi ( ESXi as a Guest in a ESXI Host ) some parameters should be taken:

1. Insure that the vSwitch on the physical host is configured properly:

a. Promiscuous mode – Accept

b. Mac Changes – Accept

c. Forged Transmit – Accept

2. Then again, don’t clone your ESXi vm, Cloning of ESXi can conflict many components like VMkernel MAC addresses

3. Fresh install, better way to avoid any of the unexpected issues
