        The whole idea is run ESXi in a VM in Azure IaaS, where I cannot use legacy NIC ...

          I'm not really sure where you are going with this.  Hyper-V doesn't virtualize the hardware-assisted virtualization features of the physical processor, so you would be stuck running 32-bit nested guests with binary translation.  Performance would be terrible.  Moreover, unless you can set your NIC to promiscuous mode, you wouldn't be able to get networking through to your nested VMs.

            Now that Windows 10 and Server 2016 support nested virtualisation, is anyone working on porting the native hyper-v Network adapter drivers to ESXi so we're not limited to 100mbit on the legacy adapter?

                Hello,

                does anyone know how to compile / build the net-tulip driver for ESXi 6.5 or 6.7 ?

                According to this article: https://www.v-front.de/2016/11/esxi-65-release-notes-for-free-license.html,

                "Legacy and Community network driver compatibility

                 

                In KB2147697 VMware declares that all drivers built and certified on ESXi 5.5 and 6.0 are also supported with ESXi 6.5.

                 

                Technically even drivers that have been compiled for ESXi 5.1 can still be installed and used on ESXi 6.5. However, drivers that have been compiled for ESXi 5.0 can definitely no longer be installed on ESXi 6.5.

                 

                This affects the following drivers from the V-Front Online Depot: net-atl1, net-atl1e, net-r8101, net-8139too, net-skge, net-tulip. They can no longer be installed on and used with ESXi 6.5."

                 

                If anyone knows how to make the net-tulip driver compatible with ESXi 6.5 or 6.7, please share the information.

                  If anyone knows how to make the net-tulip driver compatible with ESXi 7, please share the information. I've tried to make a custom iso image with this driver : https://communities.vmware.com/servlet/JiveServlet/download/2512767-136720/net-tulip-1.1.15-1.x86_64.vib.zip and ESXi 7 but the Microsoft Hyper-V manager does not include it. I've created the customized iso giving the following commands :

                  tulip driver blacklisted on the ESXi versions more than 6 ? why ?

                   

                  Hello to everyone.

                   

                  I'm still a newbie of the vmware products. But I want to learn. I'm trying to customize a VMware ESXi image adding the tulip driver inside the ESXi-7.0.0-15843807-standard iso image file because I want to install it in a Hyper-V VM. Below are the commands that I gave and the error that I've got.

                  This is a driver on VMware's black list. So you can't find it and run it. The operation you have already done is not supported.

                   

                   

                  So,I would like to know why this driver is on the VMware black list and if there is another method to achieve what I want. thanks.

                    I doubt you will find that for ESXi 7, seeing as it does not support “legacy” or “vmklinux” drivers (only “native” drivers).

                      Hello,

                      I am in the same boat. I figured out 2 solutions :

                      1. Install the latest VMWare workstation version on hyper-v then create ESXi inside. Of course, this is for LAB testing only. In my test case: I tried Windows server 2019 as host OS, then install VMWare workstation 15.5 for the hypervisor to try ESXi 7 as guest os. I also used server 2019 hyper v to host my MCSE lab VMs. Update: you must manually enable hypervisor launch type off/auto in bcdedit to make it compatible with your VMWare workstation or HyperV >>> I prefer the next option to have both HyperV and ESXI running.

                      2. Buy a network card which compatible to ESXi then pass it through, following this tutorial Passing through devices to Hyper-V VMs by using discrete device assignment | Scripting Blog

                       

                      Good luck,

                      Cheers!
