Web access doesn’t work on new install or upgrade of ESX 3

You can run these commands:

esxcfg-vswitch -A serviceconsole vSwitch0

esxcfg-vswif -a -i -n -p serviceconsole vswif0

That should be it. The new interface is vswif0 rather than eth0.

This problem is common among upgrades that have 2 nics shared between the service console / vmkernel.
