ESXi 5, Nexus 1000V, Custom ISO…oh my…

So a quick post today on an issue I ran into (and was also told about by @kendrickcoleman). After building a custom VMware ESXi 5 ISO with the Cisco Nexus 1000V vib, EMC PowerPath 5.7 vibs, and the vSphere HA vib, I deployed out 3 hosts. After deployment, I noticed all three hosts had one CPU core spiked while the rest remained idle. It turns out, that once the host is added to the Cisco Nexus 1000V dVS, CPU usage returns to normal.

Just an FYI on this topic in case other people run into it.
