I'm trying to create an ESXi host profile for our new x240 nodes but I always get "A general system error occured: "Invalid value chosen for standbyNics".
This seems to be related to the vSwitchUSB0 for IMM_Network0 (http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=isg3T1018919). vSwitchUSB0 was automaticially created during install of the ESXi 5.1 host with the customized IBM image (ESXi-5.1.0-799733-IBM-20120919.iso). If I remove vSwitchUSB0 I can create the host profile without error, but after 60 seconds vSwitchUSB0 will be recreated and the host profile is then useless because the host is then "Noncompliant".
Is there a solution for this problem? First of all I don't understand what the error "Invalid value chosen for standbyNics" is at all or why it prevents the host profile from being created. vSphere depends heavyly on host profiles because of auto deploy, so there must be a way to use profiles with x240 nodes.
