An administrator finds that after creating an External Network for an Organization vDC, virtual machines are unable to communicate using the new network. The administrator confirms that the virtual machines are able to communicate to the Edge Gateway, but the Edge Gateway is unable to ping its Default Gateway. What is the probable cause of the network issues?
An incorrect VLAN is configured on the vSphere Port Group.
During an upgrade, the ESXi 5.x installer finds an existing version of ESXi and a VMFS3 volume. No virtual machines exist on the host or VMFS3 volume. The requirement is to upgrade to VMFS5. Which option should be chosen to meet this requirement?
