Problem with ESXi Discovery/Identification

Hello Folks,

some days ago I implemented 2 ESX3i Servers (DL380 G5 with HP integrated USB Key) in our data center. All firmware's (including ESXi) were updated to the newest versions available. The servers work fine so far.

Only the integration into SIM is currently a problem. After the intital discovery of the two servers everything seems fine. I can check the hardware state, etc. via the SIM UI. The hostname is correctly shown as the system name.

But after the daily system identification job the system name in SIM changes to the serial number of the system and the monitoring state changes to suspended. There is no possibility to reenable the monitoring or run a further identification task.

This behaviour can also be reproduced through a second identification after inital discovery. The system credentials are entered correctly.

SIM version is 5.3 with Hotfix 1.

Has anyone an idea to solve this problem or can confirm it?
