I have a vNIC template for VMware. The vNIC template has a bunch of VLANs that map to port groups on ESXi servers. I have those vNIC templates in my service profile template that I have used to create some service profiles for ESXi servers. I unbound the service profile template from the service profiles right after creation. When I want to add a port group to an ESXi server I got to UCS and add a VLAN then add that VLAN to the vNIC template that is associated with the service profile template and service profiles of the ESXi servers. That has been working successfully for a year. Recently, I cloned the service profile template because I needed to create a new profile for some ESXi servers that I'm building. I had to make changes to the vHBA templates in the service profile template. I didn't make any changes to networking configuration in the cloned service profile template. This morning when I added a VLAN in UCS and went to update the vNIC template with the new VLAN it prompted for a reboot of the ESXi servers that were created from the cloned service profile template, but not the other ESXi servers that I created with the original service profile template. I've compared the service profile templates but can't see any difference (other then what I purposefully changed in the vHBA templates).
What could I be doing wrong that would prompt for the ESXi servers to reboot? I should be able to add vlans to the vNIC templates without a need for a reboot of the host.
the vNIC template and service profile template are updating templates.
It asks for a reboot every time I attempt to add a VLAN to the vNIC template. The funny thing is I have other service profiles that use the vNIC template that are not prompting for a reboot for I add an additional vlan. Just the ESXi servers that are using the cloned service profile template. I went through the cloned service profile template setting for setting and compared it to the service profile template that I had cloned it from and they are the exact same except for the vHBA settings.
