Host reboot and IP addresses are lost

New HPE DL380 Gen10 servers running the HPE customized ESXi 6.7 software. This is the customized version downloaded in May, I did notice there was a new one posted at th end of June

Management is setup on standard switch, DVswitch used for VM, iSCSI, and vMotion traffic

VMkernel ports are all setup for iSCSI and vMotion with iSCSI binding showing all storage volumes

Reboot a host and the IP address information for the iSCSI and vMotion is gone! The IP address for the management network stays just fine


Not sure if the problem lies with the setup of these new servers (BIOS or NIC settings) or with the HPE customized version of ESXi

Any ideas?

Re: Host reboot and IP addresses are lost

I am working with a consultant on this work. Last week we opened a ticket with HPE support and VMWare support. He spent about two hours on Friday with a VMWare support engineer. Come to find out that this is a known issue with ESXi 6.7 on DL series servers. VMWare is working on a patch to fix this issue, until then I cannot put these into production.
