Unable to set Gateway in ESXi through Answer File

Hello All,

We have vCenter implementation in our production environment. We are using AutoDeploy Server to deploy esxi on the servers in there.

One problem I recently came across was that, for subsequent reboots the ESXi loses gateway information. This seems appropriate since VMware has suggested that they would not store gateway setting in Host profile in latest versions.

However I am trying to find a work-around here. For specific reasons we cannot have static ip associated with ESXi since, we are piggy backing networking from older infrastructure.

I wanted to ask whether, I can set Gateway through answer files specifically? I have tried to explore this possibility through certain modifications, but havnt been successful as of yet. Appreciate your comments in advance.

Thanks,

M

Did you ever get this working?  I'm having the same issue. I'm trying to modify the XML answer file but so far that's not working.

Thanks,

Eric
