ESXi 5.5 VMNIC Sequencing order on HP534FLB and HP554FLB Ethernet

Most of you might be aware but thought to share the KB  regarding HP554FLB and HP 534FLB difference in term of native FC and FCOE. HP 554 (Gen 8) supports native FC while HP 534FLB (Gen9) does not support native FC but Fceo. That is the reason when we run the following commands on 554FLB enabled blade we get nothing except prompt causing the VMNIC in sequence order i.e. VMNIC0,1,2,3,4,5,6

But if we checked the same against HP 534FLB , we get the allocated vmnicX ( X could be vmnic2, 3) for Fceo connection causing the VMNIC in non-sequence order i.e. VMNIC0,1,4,5,6,7
