Anyone know how to find the driver version of a VMXNET3 vNIC on a Windows Server?

I know I can get a list of driver versions from the VMTools manifest.txt file in the ISO download but is there a way to check on the actual VM that this is installed?

This is from version 10.0.9 for example and Im not 100% which one for example a Windows 2012 server would use, I assume the 2.2.0.0 one.

vmxnet.version = "2.2.0.0"

vmxnet3_2008.version = "1.6.7.0"

vmxnet3_ndis5.version = "1.5.2.0"

vmxnet3_ndis6.version = "1.6.7.0"

Thanks

Hi ,

If you install the latest vmware tool as per your environment, it automatically updates the network driver.

You can read the vmware tool release note to know about details.

However, if you are facing any issue with vmxnet3, you can go for E1000 which is the legacy supported vNIC and it will sure solve your issues.
