Host disconnects when applying host profile

HI.

I have Dell m630 blades in a e1000m chassis.

I have a 5.5 vcenter with 5.5 hosts.

I use auto deploy.

I have one distributed vswitch. The hosts have 2 nics.

I have one vmk0 for management and one vmk1 for vmotion.

when I apply (or auto deploy does it) the host gets to 22% and disconnects. Stops pinging. On the DCUI it shows the hostname with 0.0.0.0 static.

When I trui to restore the network settings, it fails.

Any ideas?

I really am going crazy about this... I opened a ticket with support 16 days ago and no real answers except, another guy will call back lol.

I put screenshots.

I had a similar issue to this quite some time ago... I will start looking for my notes but what I essentially ended up doing was pulling sections of the profile out individually and then putting them back in to find the one part that was causing the disconnect.

I tried disabling things. As soon as something touches the network it disconnects (vds, network core dump on vmk0)...

I tried with a newly installed vcenter 6 latest and dell m630 on the latest esxi6...

Same thing...

I have about 300 new blades to configure, i won't be doing them all by hand lol
