    Changing parameters that require reboot

      Hi,

       

      I'm trying to implement stateless auto deploy in an environment that uses NAS (NetApp).

      Best practice according to NetApp and other sources is to modify these values on each host:

      Net.TcpipHeapSize
      If you are using vSphere 5.0 or later, set to 32.
      For all other NFS configurations, set to 30.
      Net.TcpipHeapMax
      If you are using vSphere 5.0 or later, set to 128.
      For all other NFS configurations, set to 120.

      However, changing these values requires a reboot.  And then upon reboot, the changes have been reverted because the install is stateless and the host profile is out of compliance.

      Is there some way to embed the settings in the Auto Deploy Image Profile or something else like that?

       

      Thanks,
