Hi @nbgiridar ,

If you have an updated compatible driver from HP for ESXi 6.7, you can update the driver via command line

Installing async drivers in ESXi 5.x/6.x/7.x using esxcli 

Hope that helps

Have you provided the necessary checks from the HP official site?

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
