The link above mentions that "The esxcli system settings encryption set command fails on some TPMs, such as those from NationZ (NTZ) and Infineon Technologies (IFX), even when the TPM is enabled for the host."
Is the Cisco TPM 2.0 expected to work with this new TPM Encryption feature set or is it using a NTZ/IFX chip and therefore will not be able to work?
I'm running these in a home lab so unfortunately don't have the option to log a TAC ticket.
The issue should be reproduceable simply be enabling the TPM in 2.0 mode, and installing ESXi 7.0 U2. (This new TPM security mode is only tried to be enabled after a new install or upgrade to 7.0 U2) PPI Spec 1.2 or 1.3 for the TPM makes no difference.
You can run the following command on a host to check its state after install/upgrade to 7.0 U2. "esxcli system settings encryption get"
If mode is "NONE" then its not using the TPM 2.0.
You can run "esxcli system settings encryption set --mode=TPM" to try and reconfigure it to use the TPM 2.0, but in my case below it fails.
If you guys don't have an option to test internally then I can try to find someone else I know who has a similar setup to me (but in production and a smartnet contract) to log the ticket.
