Installed - 188.8.131.523-10vmw.6184.108.40.20669922
but i noticed that there is a difference, HP one says OEM and the existing one says vmw
Hi @nbgiridar ,
vmw is the inbox driver that is loaded along with ESXi image and the OEM driver is provided by hardware vendor. In this case, hardware vendor is HP.
You can use inbox driver or OEM as long as they are compatible with the hardware(HPSA). Please refer the KB article shared earlier to install the driver using esxcli
