Newly installed FreePBX15 on VMware ESXI hangs on shut down and reboot

Hi all,

During several days I am trying to solve this issue, but no luck :frowning:

I have installed the latest FreePBX Distro on VMware ESXI Hypervisor, and when trying to shut down the VM or reboot, it gets stuck… The only thing I can see is a black screen.

What I have tried:

  1. Upgrade VMware ESXI Hypervisor to the latest version, VMware and open-vm tools are also the latest versions
  2. Have applied all the possible VM configurations while creating the virtual machine.

The only thing I have figured out is that when I disable the Ethernet it starts working properly.

Any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks!

I experience this on ESXi too. It takes a long time to shutdown/reboot.

Running up-to-date FreePBX 15 and ESXi 6.7U3.

There are other posts where the causes of the shutdown slowdown have been identified - I don’t think it’s just an ESXI thing.

Check this and see if it looks familiar:
