VSAN issue

VSAN issue

VSAN issue

I have 3 hosts (1 is nested). I have a Dell R710 with 5.7TB with RAID5 and 1 2TB drive which I converted to SSD via web console. When I enable VSAN it shows the drives and I select those 2 drives. I get an exclamation on all host with the error that:
Hosts cannot communicate with other nodes in the virtual san enabled cluster.
I am using standard switches and I have a VSAN kernal port on all switches.
On the nested esxi I have Promiscuous mode enabled.

Do I need to have all host contribute drives?
