VCSA cli installation failing

Hello everyone,

I'm facing some troubles with cli installator of vCenter. After creating virtual machine, it hangs at retrieving IP address. According to logs, it's trying to get IPv6 address, but we have it disabled on all machines. Also, in json template there is specified that we want to use IPv4. I'm attaching vcsa-cli-installer.log and screenshot of created virtual machine. I would be more than happy to provide more information if needed.

DHCP is providing an IPv6. Better go with Static IPv4 (make sure  to have  dns entries both forward n reverse updated) .
