    NETDEV WATCHDOG: vswif0: transmit timed out + Broadcom BNX2 + ESX

    yaki5 Novice

      Today,

      I struggle with a strange networking issue:

      NETDEV WATCHDOG: vswif0: transmit timed out.

       

      It caused by a faulty module - bnx2.

      In order to somehow return it to online state the following commands must be used:

      login to console:

      vmkload_mod -u bnx2

      vmkload_mod bnx2

       

      This issue affects on Broadcom Corporation Broadcom NetXtreme II BCM5708 and maybe on other cards too

       

      Regards,
