ESX Provisioning error - pump told us: No DHCP reply received

I keep getting this error during stage2 of esx provisioning "pump told us: No DHCP reply received" I know my host is communicating with the SA server because it successfully pulls down the pxe info.

Re: ESX Provisioning error - pump told us: No DHCP reply received

I stumbled upon this article that really goes into detail about the issue. I am provisioning on a Dell PowerEdge R610 with 4 onboard nic ports and a dual port nic card added. Looks like the system was getting confused about which nic was eth0 between reboots. Solved the issue by using ksdevice= rather then ksdevice=eth0
