vROPs 8.6.2 network broken on initial deployment?

I'm trying to stand up a new vROPs appliance using the 8.6.2 OVA.  The appliance is not pingable and I cannot reach the web interface.  I've tried both static IPv4 and DHCP -- same result.

Here's the odd part: I can successfully ping outbound from this appliance.  An inbound ping gets no reply.  ifconfig increments the packets received counter with each ping so I know the pings are arriving.  netstat -l shows RX-ERR incrementing with each ping.

I've never seen anything like this before.

Edit: I get ping replies during graceful VM shutdown (initiated from vCenter).

Edit2: 8.6.1 does the same thing.

iptables -I INPUT -j ACCEPT

 

The above allows me to ping the appliance.  But I still cannot reach the web interface.  Via netstat I don't see anything listening on port 443.

Resolved.  The problem was due to OVA deployment from a content library.  Uploading the OVA directly from my PC during the deployment process "fixed" the networking issue.

Yet another vSphere 7.x bug...

I'm getting the same issue, but uploading the ova locally doesn't resolve it for me unfortunately

I have been looking for this problem all day. Thank you very much. I have no idea about the consequences of deploying ova templates from the content library, because I used to deploy nsx by uploading ova to the content library and then deploying it to the virtual machine.
