DL380G6 skips USB Key boot device

Hi All,

We have two identical DL380-G6 boxes with ESXi 5.1 installed on Sandisk USB key, both servers run System ROM P62 5/5/2011 and ILO 2.12.

Day before I noticed that one guy does not automatically boot from USB Key although "USB Key C:" has been set as a first bootable device as well as Internal USB Media Boot sequence.

The only work around to hit F11 during POST and select USB key then the box boots from internal USB. This weird issue happens only on one of two identical server.


Hope for your advice

for some reason my reply has been removed.

Just want to re-confirm that BIOC restore to factory default has solved the problem
