Cannot WOL with Intel NUC8i7BEK after shutting down ESXi 6.7U1

I have similar, if not identical issue described here:

https://intel-openport-v8.hosted.jivesoftware.com/thread/146358

 

I also have NUC8iBEK, with ESXi6.7U1 installed. Basically, if I switch off the power (at the socket) and switch it on again, Intel NUC will wake up with WOL / Magic Packet sent to the mac address of the network interface. ESXi will start up as expected.

 

But if I "Shut Down" from ESXi GUI.. the network switch seems to show the port/interface as "up", even though NUC box have powered down. WOL/Magic packet does not wake it up no matter how many times I tried, until I switch off the power completely off and then on again.

 

I have followed the suggestion to update to BIOS version 0056, but that did not help.

 

Anyone else having this issue?

Hi Ken, i read it and i am not blaming it on Intel. However, NUC is the perfect platform for this type of things and the fact that the whole 8th gen is not working with ESXi is a blow. Free users have no say with VMWare. Any chances Intel could flag it to them...?

Hi MFinn3. We have reported the issue to VMWare, but unfortunately we don't have any insight into their plans for working on the issue. Wish I had a more positive answer.
