After upgrading an ESXi host using a custom image, you experience these symptoms.
  • The ScratchConfig.CurrentScratchLocation is set to /scratch.
  • You see these warnings:

    System logs on host [] are stored on non-persistent storage.


    No scratch partition has been configured. Recommended scratch partition size is {} MiB." ( = /scratch/log).

  • Changing the ScratchConfig.CurrentScratchLocation does not persist between reboots.


This issue is due to the Emulex driver that is included in the Dell EMC Customized image ESXi 6.5 A04.
