I have a vyatta router that is not coming up after powering on the esxi 5.1 host. I've been all over the web, consoling in and trying numerous methods but can't figure out how to get vyatta running. Please help.

What exactly do you mean? I assume you have Vsphere client installed and are connected to the host ok? Or what happens when you try to power it on?

Yes we have vsphere installed on the PC, but it isnt even getting an IP address so it isn't connecting to vcenter.
I power on host and vyatta doesnt seem to come up since DHCP isn't working.

Ok vm's dont power on unless u've configured them to in vsphere - have u done that.

Obviously vyatta is ur dhcp.
Since its not powered on u need to assign a static ip on ur vsphere pc to allow u to connect to esxi first
Once in vsphere and connected go to Configuration, VM Startup/Shutdown section and put the vm into the Auto Start section

For the record see my screenshot - that's the section you need to be in to set a VM to autostart with a host...can you confirm you've done that much?
