Fresh install of freenas 11.2-U5 in esxi 6.5, it boots and appears to function okay.

However, esxi complains with this warning message

"The configured guest OS (FreeBSD (64-bit)) for this virtual machine does not match the guest that is currently running (FreeBSD 11.2-STABLE). You should specify the correct guest OS to allow for guest-specific optimizations."

I never got this message when running freenas 9.3 under esxi with the following settings

Guest OS: Other
Guest OS Version: FreeBSD (64-bit)

I have mine (on ESXi 6.7) set to:

Guest OS: Other
Guest OS Version: FreeBSD 11 (64-bit)

It seems to be happy with that.
