Transport Node status is degraded when its interface is down.


The NSX Manager declares a transport node to be in a degraded state if any of its interface that is used by host switch is Down.


  1. To check for the status of interfaces, run Esxcfg-vswitch –l.
  2. To check status of uplinks, run esxcli network nic list.
  3. Fix the PNIC that is down and in use by the VDS.
  4. Alternatively, remove or replace the PNIC in VDS uplink configuration.
