R640 ESXi Management port not working after reboot.

Dell R640

6.7.0 Update 3 (Build 14320388)

I worked with the system for months and now that it is on site the iDRAC port works, the VMWare VM network port works (I can ping the running VMs) but the ESXi Management port is not responding.

There is now some question as to the correct port. We just connected all 4 of the R640 Ethernet ports to a switch with a laptop and pinged all the IP addresses but the management port never replied.

They even checked the ESXi console and there are no errors and it displays the same IP address I’ve been using.

Is it something odd where you must have the correct port connected at boot or it will not work?

Log in to the Direct Console User Interface of the ESXi. Select Configure Management Network and press Enter. From the Configure Management Network Options menu, select IPv4 Configuration or IPv6 Configuration and press Enter. Set new IPv4 or IPv6 config then Press Enter
