What should work (learned from MikroTik support) is to factory reset the device. If you restore the text backup (RSC file), the DUID is regenerated first time you use DHCPv6. Not sure what happens with a binary backup though. This works but still doesn't address the case where you have to set up an...

Is this behavior also observed when using vswitches without physical nics ?

Anyway, we recently upgraded to esxi 6.5 buid 5310538.

Some more testing this morning, on KVM since it was easier to do without side effects :
I changed the NIC types from virtio to e1000 just to make sure the problem isn't with virtio.

I get exactly the same behavior.
So the problem doesn't seem to be in the virtio driver.

Re: MPLS - massive throughput difference on CHR when using explicit nulls

Upgrading to RC or going back to bugfix doesn't change anything.
The problem doesn't seem to be version related.

Key factor seem to be the protocol :
UDP works well wether you have explicit-nulls or not,
TCP seems to be affected.
