    vMA 5.1.0.0 does not retain name/domain upon reboot

    AH28 Novice

      I'm trying to the latest vMA (5.1.0.0 Build 782391) build and cannot figure out why it will not retain it's hostname. I follow the 'Deploy vMA' steps completely and verify the name is updated, but when I reboot it returns to 'localhost.localdom'. The same goes for joining the domain, if I update the name and then follow the correct steps to join the domain, after it reboots (as it asks for after joining the domain), it reverts back to 'localhost.localdom'. I verify each time that the object is created in AD, so it definitely is joining the domain but losing it's settings on reboot! It does however retain the Static IP, Gateway, DNS and Time Zone info. Any ideas?

       

      vMA installed on vCenter Server 5.0.0 Build 804277. ESXi 5.0.0 (VMKernel Release Build 821926).
