    Windows 10/ESXi 6.0 Network Card Resets ad nauseum

    Richard_D Lurker

      I am running Windows 10 on ESXi 6.0.0 build 2494585.  I was running into the problem that others have experienced where windows get shut off after ~24 hours.  I came here to these forums and learned that it was because of the SATA cdrom drive.  Thank you for that bit of advice.


      On to the next issue I've discovered now that my computer can stay on long enough for a new problem to occur:


      I thought I was running into that problem again when I went to RDP to my machine and it was unavailable.  I open up vSphere and sure enough, the machine is running, but the network status says no connectivity.  I have to disable and re-enable the network interface in order to regain connection.   I have pasted below the information from the system logs.  This message repeats itself hundreds of times, incrementing in the log each time.   Does anyone have any clue what I can do to work around this problem?  It's happened at least 3 times now.  I found a similar issue on another forum with someone running Windows 10 on parallels, but the count was nowhere near as high.  I followed the advice on that thread and disabled IPv6 anyway just in case.



      Event 10400


      The network interface "Intel(R) PRO/1000 MT Network Connection" has begun resetting. There will be a momentary disruption in network connectivity while the hardware resets.

      Reason: The network driver requested that it be reset.

      This network interface has reset 784 time(s) since it was last initialized.
