    Persistent firewall rule

    sparqy Lurker

      hey guys,


         I took over some ESXi servers and I noticed they were not logging correctly.  So I added the firewall rule to open port 10514 through esxcli using an article on git hub. However, when I reboot the rule disappears.  I tried added the firewall rule in a separate xml file and adding it directly to the service.xml file.  yet each time  I reboot the ESXi host the rule and the xml file is not there when it comes back up.   Is this normal behavior for the /etc/vmware/firewall/ directory or am I missing something here. Also if it is normal how do I a persistant firewall rule to allow port 10514 because all I can find in the docs is to edit the service.xml file.
