    ESXI 6.5u2 build 8294253 hangs on vflash loaded successfully and taking too much time to boot

      Hi everyone ,

       

      I have build a new ESXI host , ( it is Cisco UCS blade b200-m5 ) , the ESXI image is  6.5u2 build 8294253

      the host was totally ok during the installation , I was rebooting it and it was just mint to come back online again

      once I configured the port groups and iSCSI vmk and add an iscsi storage device and simple storage scan and then i was able to see the iscsi luns , until now all ok ,

       

      but what i have noticed , after the above was completed , now any reboot for this host will take really too much time to boot

      and from KVM I'm seeing vflash loaded successfully and it just hang here . after few hours then it complete and become normal again

       

      does anyone faced the same issue before ?

      the above esxi build is the same ISO i used to deploy our old ESXI's  .

      the old ones do have the same configuration but they are working fine for years now .

       

      any thoughts please ?
