Hello! I've been using the following setup on 11.2 U2 until about 2 weeks ago, had a power outage long enough for my UPS to drain and shut down the NAS. when I booted it back up everything seemed to work but I had no network, spent about a week troubleshooting things and finally decided to try and update the bios from 2.0a to 2.0c, and to update ESXi 6.7U1 to U3, that didn't help with the network connection issue, pulled the ESXi host out of maintenance mode and found that my FreeNAS wasn't booting, checked in to that and found one of the settings in the BIOS reverted and after correcting that, and assigning the AOC-SLG3-2M2 to Passthough in ESXi, I'm stuck w/ this error trying to boot FreeNAS:

Virtualization is a house of cards and if any of a hundred different things isn't exactly right, things won't work. That's why we advise against virtualization.

Try detaching the SLOG device from within ESXi and see what happens.

Also I'm not down with pulling screen caps from random back-alley image sharing sites, as you never know what exploits might be getting embedded with them. You might want to upload your screen caps directly to the forum.
