Hi guys

 

I am new to VMware, and I thought I would try ESXi 6.7 on my Gen 8 microserver. Have updated the bios etc on the server.

Anyway, for some reason ESXi does not recognize the internal network interfaces. I have had to put in an intel card to even complete the install. I used the custom iso from HP the one that says G9 in the name. Now I am stuck, I know the network BCM5717, which seems to have the drivers there? but will not install? Read something about creating my own iSO and inserting drivers? But very confused as to which and what ones to use? and where from?

 

Sorry that was all rather incoherent, but this has really left me stumped.

 

Best Paul.

install esxi 6.5u2 pregen9 and update to 6.7 gen9

6.7g9 dont have all drivers needed

 

 

@sorted try update nhpsa-2.0.30-1OEM.650.0.0.4598673.x86_64.vib

it helped with my 5.5.0.102-1OEM.550.0.0.1331820 driver

Good, how can we know if our esxi installation has all the necessary controllers? I have blockages with an ubuntu VM and instability in the network, I have 1GB symmetric and in VMs it does not reach 800mbs when in a direct SO installation without esxi is 950mbs symmetric, something rare happens.

Offline Bundle Upgrades I assume? - Any comments on stability/experience or is it 99% good to run in a home environment?

Did you add in any special drivers to get it working? 

I see lots of people are switching a driver to get faster disk speeds, did you do that too?

I did not have to change any drivers, related to HDD issues, with this update 1. ESXi is stable in 24/7 environment.

Did you use the HPE custom 6.7 U1 offline bundle upgrade or something else?
