Onboard Administrator VLAN Mode disabled after OA Firmware Update

Tobias had an OA upgrade issue:




One of my customers is facing an issue with OA Firmware Update from 3.11 to 3.31. The OAs are configured for VLAN 5. After updating the OA firmware they can no longer be accessed/pinged. With a notebook directly connected to the OA you can see that the VLAN configuration is still there but not enabled. Simply setting the Enabled Checkbox re-enables VLAN mode. We see the issue with G1 and G2 Enclosures as well as Original OA and OA with KVM.
