Satellite fails to provision VM on VMware when using distributed switch, but works fine for standard switch.

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • When setting up provisioning over PXE in VMware environment, then a network is choosen in the interface tab that uses a distributed switch. Here an error is received "Could not find virtual machine network interface matching " when submit is clicked. When standard switch network is chosen then it works.
