What are two possible causes of the problem?

The remote console performance for a virtual machine on an ESXi host appears to be degraded.

What are two possible causes of the problem? (Choose two.)

A.
The virtual NIC assigned to the virtual machine has a speed or duplex mismatch.

B.
The physical NIC assigned to the virtual machine port group containing the affected virtual machine has a speed or duplex mismatch.

C.
The physical NIC assigned to the Service Console port group has a speed or duplex mismatch.

D.
The physical NIC assigned to the VMkernel port group has a speed or duplex mismatch.

    You can not set the Virtual NIC speed/duplex in ESXi so A is wrong.
    Remote console is display by using the management port group that is VMkernel so D is correct
    B is correct ?
    If Physical NIC is use by VM Port Group has some Problem then there should be no remote console performance degradation so i am douted on B

  2. Rich says:

    The remote console is accessed thru the management port which uses a VMKernel port, so D is correct.

    Since you can access a remote console for a VM that’s connected to a vSwitch that has no uplinks, B & C are incorrect.

    That leaves A as the only other possible choice. HOWEVER….

    My experience is that you can access a VM’s remote console when all of it’s vNICs are disconnected! So the vNIC is not involved at all with the remote console.

    So it looks like D is the ONLY correct answer.
