ESXi 6.5 Update 1 Host Profile application issues

Hi,

When attempting to apply host Profiles on Dell R730 ESXi Hosts configured with vSAN the Profile application results in the ESXi Host disconnecting from the network. The ESXi instance then needs a 'reset system configuration' and a complete manual reconfiguration to bring it back to life.

Excert from /var/log/syslog.log when issue occurs...

Following the failed attempt management of the instance becomes impossible and re-ip the network fails as adding any default gateways does not work. The cli show the IP route table as empty. All network restore options fail.

Anyone seen this?

What version of ESXi was the profile taken from? Is there a ESXi 6.5 U1 host that you can create a temp profile from and see if it has the same issue?
