An NSX administrator is trying to find the dvfilter name of the sa-web-01 virtual machine to capture the sa-web-01 VM traffic. What could be a reason the sa-web-01 VM dvfilter name is missing from the command output?
The most likely reason the sa-web-01 VM dvfilter name is missing from the command output is that the sa-web-01 VM is powered off on the ESXi host. The dvfilter name is associated with the VM when it is powered on, and is removed when the VM is powered off. Therefore, if the VM is powered off, then the dvfilter name will not be visible in the command output. Other possible reasons could be that the ESXi host has the firewall turned off, the ESXi host has 5SH disabled, or that the sa-web-01 VM has no firewall rules configured.
