Restarting management services may result in VSAN network partition if LACP is configured

An issue was observed where a VSAN node gets partitioned after running at the host’s console: restart

The host rejoins the cluster after the services restat.

The root cause was attributed to restarting the “lacpd” service which results in tearing down the LAG group then re-forming it. During which time, the host is disconnected from the VSAN network. I will update this post when a fix is available.


  1. Great find. Looking forward to the fix.
