Mac Address Conflict on 2 Proliant 380 G8 Servers

Hello,

I am in a very weird situation now, i am planning to convert my physical servers to virtual soon, Depending on  2 identical HP Proliant DL380 G8, each server has 4 Ports NIC,

after installing the ESXI 6.5 HP ISO, gave different IPs for each host on Vmnic0 as management interface. and brought both servers online, i detected some network issues, some times on server-1 and sometimes on server-2, after checking, i found a shocking situation. both server Ports nics have the same MACs, ports 1,2,3,4 ideally on both servers, port 1 on server 1 exact the same like port 1 on server 2, and so on for all ports.

how this ever could happen !! my information that each unit should have its own mac address with zero chance of this kind of conflict. 

has anyone face this kind of problem ? and how to solve this !

Thanks

Open a support case with HPE so a replacement NIC can be sent to you
