Description (partial)

On C220 M4 and C240 M4 servers, TPM fails to initialize after installing ESXi 5.1 U2 Patch 05, and enabling and activating TPM and TXT.

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 5.1U2 Patch 05 on UCS C220 M4 / C240 M4 with TPM enabled.
Check the hostd logs for TPM related error messages.
