I had to migrate my principal vCenter last night onto another physical host as the RAID controller needed to be reconfigured.
I made the secondary active, shut down vCenter service in principal, shut down the guest, migrated (offline) the vCenter VM.
Once the RAID was reconfigured I migrated the server back to the host, powered on the principal, all the NICs were removed. The VM received new NICs. I had to manually input the IP settings (interface metric, multiple IPs per the public NIC, etc).
Now I can't get my principal to take the principal role. Looks like the NIC changed borked the communciations.
I'm getting this on the principal. vCenter isn't able to make the shared IP the primary on the VM:
An attempt to set the network configuration failed for the following reasons: Failed to set IP addresses while Enabling the public identity.
Failed to set the IP addresses : [192.168.8.13 : 255.255.255.0] for the network adapter.
Please review your network configuration.--
