This is the correct answer, if you follow the link: VMware Compatibility Guide - I/O Device Search, then change to ESXi v6.7U3.
Then expand the info "+" and follow that link to: https://my.vmware.com/group/vmware/details?downloadGroup=DT-ESXI55-LSI-MEGARAID_SAS-66045400-1OEM&productId=353,
Then open: "Read More". it identifies the LSI-9260.
I have been using the LSI2308, but plan to add a host to my "Home" VMware Cloud, using the LSI9260.
I'll update the post once I'm done.
