IP address keeps changing to vmotion IP after applying host profile in esxi5

Last Modified: 2012-08-30
Hi I have configured a new esxi5 host on a dl 580g7 server. I have 2 NICs dedicated for VM(s), DMZ, NFS each and have combined Mgmt Interface with vMotion with 2 NICs. I've also saved this server's settings as a host profile. When i apply this host profile to another server with exactly same hardware and software spec It changes Mgmt IP to the one assigned to vMotion and i lose this server.

When i logon to server through iLO i can see that Mgmt IP has now changed to vMotion IP address.

Could someone advice how can i make sure that mgmt Interface gets precedence over vMotion Interface?
