I'm install esxi 7.0 in my 8635U 24GB mini pc with 6 82583V gigabit lan ports
but get the message "No network adapters"
I check for VMware Compatibility Guide, 82583V 8086:150c is support.
How can i get esxi 7.0 to support 82583V.
in ESXI 6.7 U3 is support for this.
You can download the offline bundle vib which is in zip format. Once download upload to datastore and then run with following command to update it.
This command for install
esxcli software vib install -d “/vmfs/volumes/Datastore/DirectoryName/offlinebundledriver.zip”
This command to update the drive.
esxcli software vib update -d “/vmfs/volumes/Datastore/DirectoryName/offlinebundledriver.zip”
Please follow what I mentioned via SSH to esxi. Make sure don’t use esxi image. You have to download driver and follow that procedure.
You can also update or install the driver if you are using vmware update manager.
here is the refrence screenshot for install. same way you can update the drive however you just change the command esxcli software vib update -d / tmp/xyzdriver.zip
@Nawals I encountered the same issue, Intel 82533V Network adapters works well in ESXi 6.7, but upgrade to ESXi7 will encounter No Network Adapter warning during the installation.
How to SSH to ESXi 7 when it's not installed yet? ( It couldn't be installed or upgraded successfully because the network adapter driver doesn't work)
In this case, do you mean we should SSH to host and update the drive on ESXi 6.7, then upgrade to ESXi7?
Okay. So post upgrade this issue encounter. Then I would suggest to update the latest driver on ESXi 6.7 and then upgrade to ESXi to 7.0 Hope this will work...
Thx, seems there's another issue, update the native driver on ESXi 6.7 was skipped. (Message: Host is not changed. VIBs Skipped.)
82583V network adapter consumed VMKLinux driver in ESXi 6.7 by default and recognized as e1000e, although the native driver (ne1000) was already in 6.7 U3 package.
Is there a way to disable the VMKLinux driver for this device on 6.7 and let it run with native driver?
Esxi 7.0 no longer supported vmklinux drivers. In this case looks like you to look new hardware. Below are the reference link vmklinux driver..
Correct. Is something lagging between compatibility matrix and vmware blog. We all know that vmklinux driver no longer supported. my assumption it may be bug in 7.0 if consider is supported as per matrix as shows. This need to report VMware to get more clarity about this.
I'm new here - installed ESXi (free) for the first time a week ago, worked - then attempted to upgrade to 7 with this hardware. Of course blocked despite the claimed compatibility.
- Anything I can do to help get this resolved? How would I report it?
- If I'm still in the return window for the device that has this - should I consider returning it....I like it otherwise, but hard to predict if it will be compatible going forward with these mixed messages of compatibility and not.
But that's the point, if you go to the compatibility matrix it says there is a native driver and it should be working. It's just not. If you look at 6.7 it says it was there then as well.....just it obviously wasn't using it. If you read the forum above someone tried to force it to native in 6.7 without luck.
Are you using the prescribed driver version? If so, you may want to open a case with GSS. It's also possible that this list isn't accurate for 7.0. Since it's such a new release, there are (and will be) things that are mistakes which are getting corrected.

The HCL on VMWare's site definitely lists that the Intel 82583V driver is supported on previous versions which I have working, AND the 7.0 installation. The issue is that it doesn't work.
