[PROBLEM] After upgrading Esxi from 6.0 U2 to Esxi from 6.0 U3a, server in not pingable anymore.

I've created a bootable usb drive and upgraded from HPE custom Esxi 6.0 U2 to 6.0 U3a.

All went smooth but when it rebooted it wasn't pingable anymore. The IP address is the same and the keyboard is somewhat disabled.

I've rerolled the old update but the issues remain!

Any idea on how i can solve this situation?

I would suggest the following:

Log in to remote console and test management network.

Select configure management network and see, whether the proper network adapters, vLAN, and IPv4 configuration is selected.

A lot of times, after an upgrade, default gateway might change to

Finally, check the firewall status: esxcli network firewall get. Disable the firewall and check to see if it change.
