I am installing ESXi 6.7.0 on several MacPro 6,1 machines.
I am able to complete the installation and network configuration at the main screen. However, I have to jump back and forth between several of these machines to configure each one, or go back and reconfigure something.
I am using a crash cart (Keyboard, 4:3 Monitor) with a VGA to mini-DVI adapter in one of the Thunderbolt 2 ports to work with these. I am still procuring an HDMI to DVI connector to test whether the HDMI port has the same issue.
When I disconnect video from a device, and connect to another, or reconnect to the same device, I see a black screen. No output from device and monitor goes to sleep.
No input or mouse movement can cause the display to wake-up.
I have tried this with different displays and all experience the same issue.
I get video if I reboot the device, either by hard reboot or by restarting the machine from muscle-memory (keyboard input is still plug-and-play, it seems).
Is this a known issue with ESXi 6.7 on MacPro 6,1 or is this just an issue with using the Thunderbolt port?
Is there any resolution to this issue. I have the same issue with 6.5U3 / 6.7U3 / 7.0.
