Getting the layout of the lab network clear is going to save a lot of confusion, I came up with this, the idea is to represent hosts with x2 1GB embedded nics and x2 10Gb nics.

This would be built left to right;

1. create the port groups on the physical host
2. create the nested dvs and add nested vmnics
3. add nested hosts

NSX-Lab-dvs - dvs-2

Once built it should look like this…

lab-networks-dvs

Finally, change the MTU to 1600 for each dVS, this assumes your physical host portgroup is also 1600, and in promiscuous mode
