Description (partial)

TPM fails to initialise on C460 M4 with ESXi 5.1 U2, ESXi 5.5, ESXi 5.5 U1  

hostd.log reports:
"warning 'Hostsvc.HostTpmProvider'] Unable to initialize the TPM. This could be because the platform doesn't have TPM support, or it is disabled and/or deactivated. This can also happen if TXT is disabled. If a TPM is available on the machine, it needs to be enabled and activated. TXT must also be enabled."

Install ESXi 5.5 / ESXi 5.5 U1  or ESXi 5.1U2 on UCS C460 M4 with TPM enabled.
Check the hostd logs for TPM related error messages.
