    =========================================

     

    - The ESXi hostname and its IP address should be In DNS

    - vCenter server should be able to resolve ESXi hostname (both short and FQDN)

    - UCS Director server also should be able to resolve ESXi hostname (both short and FQDN)

    - Under the Regsiter Host with vCenter task, unmap/uncheck the PXEBoot Request ID and Host Node

    - In the following page of the task, uncheck the PXE ID option. It will ask you to enter hostname, username and password (root/password)

    - For hostname you can enter either of the below formats

        ${ESXI_HOSTNAME}.domain.com or

        ${ESXI_HOSTNAME}
