  • change network labels on vsphere 5.5 distributed switch vlans

    Hey guys, I have a environment running vSphere 5.5 and we are using distributed switches. I'd like to edit the names so that it's a little more intuitive when selecting a network for a vm. We have a boat load of vlans and i'd like to add a description like vlan12-dev-192.168.10.0/24 instead of just vlan12. I don't see a way to edit the network label though, any ideas how to do this?

    I don't have a distributed vSwitch handy but from memory, its been a while since i played with a DS, the process is the same.

    Go to Inventory then Networking. You should see all your switches in there.
    Select the DS you want to change, right click at the top level select Edit Settings. In there change the name in the General section.
    If you want to change the uplinks or the dvPortGroup you can right click either and select Edit Settings and change the name.
