ESXi 4.1 reboot to default config


A strange issue with a ESXi 4.1 build on a Dell R710, on reboot it goes to the default configuration.


IP Details for management

I have to re-add everything to log onto the V-Sphere client and then when i do all the config for the iSCSI SAN we have has gone along with all the NIC config's

Never seen this before and i have a couple of R710's configured with ESXi that reboot fine.

Any ideas?  Thanks Martin

Have you reinstalled ESXi (should only take 20 mins and since you have already lost your config...

I did this already last week, I thought it was just a quirk whe it 1st happened, did not think of rebotting to test config!  I have built a few R710's with same spec and all was ok.
