    Shutting down an ESXi results in the server rebooting each time

    cimera Lurker



      Just want to be sure the issue I have is not a VMware issue. Putting an ESXi host into maintenance mode and issuing a shutdown either through vsphere or  esxcli results in a reboot of the server


      Shutting down the server through the ILO works fine each time and the server stays shutdown



      I can see the shutdown being called

      ESXi version=6.7.0, build=13644319 Update 2 Patch 55

      vcenter version=6.7.0, build=14070654


      I disabled Wake On Lan (WOL) in the bios and this resolved the issue


      I guess my question is could vsphere be somehow causing this or are we more looking at some rogue magic packets on then network. Could a vsphere networking misconfig result in this type of behavior
