host only networking (hostonlyif) broken

Guest type: other Host type: other


We have just upgrade all our VM hosts to 5.1.24r117012 which obviously broke the whole vm networking across 300 VMs (hostonlyifs). It is not possible to ping the hostonly interface from the guest and the host system shows that all packets to the interface are being dropped.
