Dell R710 + iDrac + ESX

Hello list,

I was wondering if anyone experienced similar issues to what we're seeing and 
perhaps even know of a solution/workaround.

When using the dedicated LOM for the iDrac, everything works just fine. 
However, when using any of the shared LOM settings for the iDrac, the iDrac 
is reachable only until ESX(i) loads it's network driver. I'm guessing this 
is more of a VMware problem than Dell, but am curious nonetheless if anyone 
else has seen/solved this behaviour.
