[Solved] Can changed server MAC stop services?

Post by TommyKL » Tue Oct 16, 2018 2:49 pm

I've got a server set up as a VM on a vmware host which worked just fine.
I had to migrate that VM to a more powerful vmware host and since doing that, clients can no longer connect.

On the client, I see the following error.
Tue Oct 16 14:46:21 2018 TLS Error: TLS key negotiation failed to occur within 60 seconds (check your network connectivity)
Tue Oct 16 14:46:21 2018 TLS Error: TLS handshake failed

I can't find any logged errors on the server and am wondering if the problem is related to the MAC having changed because of the hardware move.

Changed MAC has no effect on openvpn.

Thanks for this information.
I think I may have found the problem. The NICs got reversed when the VM was moved to the new host.
