Timeout USB Stick - Bootbank cannot be found at path /bootbank

In my home lab I have a intel nuc canyon where I use a usb stick as boot medium with. Although it's working fine the whole setup, I have one problem:

If the esxi host is running for some hours, I get a time-out for the usb stick, which results in config lost after a reboot which is really annoying

The vmkernel logs are the following:

Do you have any time frame for how many hours USB is getting timed out? Did you try changing the USB stick with new one? See this KB: https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/1021345

Try running the command #Isusb and esxcli storage core device list | grep vmhba to see if the host can still read or lost connection completely.

Until the time you fix this, you can save a copy of your hosts settings and reload the saved settings to the host after reboot to avoid re-work.
