CISCO UCS 460 M2 ESXI 6.7

Hi everyone!

 

I recently discovered that we have a CISCO UCS 460 M2 server, unused.

 

So I decided to install ESXI 6.7 on it and use for a VM.

 

The problem is that after installing, the ESXI take up too 2 hours to boot.

 

Is this a server problem or an ESXI?

 

Does anyone have this problem too? Can it be solved? If yes, how?

Greetings.

As that is an older server, it was only tested up through ESXi 6.0.  ESXi 6.7 is not officially supported.

I would check the status of the raid controller and BBU (if it has one) as write-back caching will definitely help local disk I/O speeds.

 

I would make sure it has the latest available HUU/firmware applied, and then make sure you update your storage/network drivers, although I suspect 6.7 will probably have the latest drivers already present as the hardware was EOS/EOL well before 6.7 was released.

Not on ESXi 6.7.

That would have applied to a supported OS at the time (2014/2015) like ESXi 5.5 and 6.0.
