    ESXi 6.7 Update 2 breaks F5 VE

    gregorytd Lurker

      Hi all,

       

      After I updated to ESXi to 6.7 Update 2 from Update 1, my F5 Virtual Edition could not longer communicate on its SELF IPs.  I verified my configurations and everything looked good.  After preforming a rollback to ESX 6.7 Update 1 on one of my ESX hosts the F5 VE started working as expected again.

       

      Anyone else have this issue or might understand why ESXi 6.7 Update 2 might break the SELF IPs?

       

      I have a vSwitch configured using 2 physical NICs that are trunked and configured for ip hash. on that vSwitch a port group for All VLANS (ID 4095).  The F5 VE nics are assigned to that ALLv VLANs port group.  In the F5 the VLANs are set for tagged traffic with the VLAN number.  

       

      This config above as mentioned has been working for 8 months until the Update 2 upgrade.

       

      Any thoughts or should I roll back my other ESX host to Update 1?

       

      This is an essential license and looks like I cannot open a support case.  This is just my lab environment so not terrible worried but would like Update 2 applied for the security vulnerabilities it fixes.

       

      Thanks,

      Greg
