Running VMWare ESXi 6.5U1 on a HP DL380 G8 with the HPE Custom Image ? And getting the error message: An application (/sbin/sfcbd) running on esxi host has crashed ?
Disable the vmw_hpe-smx-provider wbem provider. Get into the ESXi CLI and do the following:
esxcli system wbem provider set -e false -n vmw_hpe-smx-provider
