G7 ESXi 5.5u3a and HP SUM 7.3.0 Failure Inventory Failed while reading FCHBA information

Hello All,

Any input would be appreciated

I'm in the process of running quarterly updates on my VMWare Hosts and have run into a problem that looks to be specific to G7 hardware. I ran my VUM updates that consisted of the September Recipe JUN15 Bundles and VMWare Updates to 10\6\15 that included the 5.5 u3a Hotfix. I then tried to mount a remote SUM scan of the host and received an error of Inventory Failed " VMWare node Inventory Failed while reading FCHBA information '  "Please check your network connectivity and HP WBEM Provider status in the VMWare Node"

At first I thought this was a one-off, but I just hit another model of G7 with the same symtomology

Hardware Status Pane is un-effected

This Problem reoccurred after the fresh rebuild of the host with the Sep 15 Custom HP VMWare ISO

Again this process went Flawlessly on G8's

So far I did the following

  1. Tested CIM\WBEM Providers
  2. Checked Host Firewall
  3. Verified SMX\WBEM Versions
  4. Reflashed Hardware
  5. Reset Bios
  6. Disconnected HBAs
  7. Tried Different HBA Driver (OEM vs VMWare)
  8. Flashed HBAs (QL)
  9. Rebuilt the box
  10. Tried OCT 2015 SPP same issue

Here's the Build and version numbers
