Issue

After updating to or installing VMware ESXi 7.0 Update 2 either or both behaviors may manifest when the BMC virtual console is open during boot:

  • ESXi boot times increase significantly
  • The ESXi boot log reflects storage path claiming issues during the storage initialization phase. For example:
