Command to check vmnic driver

Jump to solution

I was on with support a couple of weeks ago troubleshooting an issue and we figured out that part of the problem may be due to out of date vmnic drivers.  I already have updated two hosts and I have the update bundle on one of the datastores and I have the commands to install the update, but I don't remember the command to check the driver info.  I "think" it was an ethtool command, but I am not 100% sure.  Can somebody please help me remember the command?

The command to check your nic drivers is:

ethtool -i vmnic0

You can use vmkload_mod -s  e1000e to query info about the driver and esxupdate to check about updates on the host.
