Hi all,

 

i did something very stupid.

I enabled VLAN (802.1Q) and now i'm not able to connect to my xpenolgy machine.

 

Is there a way to reset the network settings?

The xpenolgy is living in ESXi. I'm able to get in the grub settings and menu.

 

Thanks in advance for your answer(s).

Do you know what VLAN # you chose?  If you have a managed switch, you should be able to map the ports for your PC and NAS to join that VLAN and then you will be able to connect.

If you have a passive switch, check the NIC configuration on your computer to see if you can add the VLAN tag there.

 

Short of those options, I'm not sure how one would recover from this situation.

i see more options

1. using serial console (afaik it possible with esxi to add a serial port to the vm and use it with putty) - login "local" with the admin account and correct the network files manually

2. mount a iso with a recovery linux in the vm boot it, mount the system partiton(s) with mdadm and correct the network files

3. use a vm client on a virtual switch and use the vlan withthat client to access dsm (can also be a recovery linux with a gui and a brwoser)

got it back up and running..

seems that during the change, ESX also found it neccessary to change the NIC.

Turning off the machine in ESX, removed the NIC saved, add new NIC

 

Issue solved...

 

thanks for tips and tricks!
