Vmware ESXI Update 1
I've tried 3 different intel server nics. Pro/1000 PT Dual Port Server Adapter, I350T4, and another I can't remember. They all seem to be having issues they are known working server nics.
AMD 1950x Threadripper
128Gigs of ECC UDIMM memory (tested no errors)
Nvidia 1050 passively cooled graphics card
MSI X399 Gaming Pro Carbon AC with the current bios revision 7B09v15
PSOD attached I do think it's related to the NICS and some sort of software issue or bios issue not sure which but need to get to the bottom of this.
I'm not sure how to inject or customize the ISO. I double checked to make sure the nics were on the compatibility list. (Intel Pro/1000 PT Dual Port Server NIC, Intel I340-T4) Intel I211 Gigabit LAN controller is the one built in.
When you say customize is it done like windows slipstreaming though is there a way to have esxi force to install those 3 drivers?
Dropbox - esx-vsphere-2017-10-15--05.25-68373.tgz Here is a link to the support dump file. I'll leave this up there for 48 hours. It's a trial version of vsphere because formatted the hard drives.
I looked on the vmware site for drivers net-igb-5.2.5-1OEM.5126.96.36.1991820.x86_64.vib are dated 2014 as the most recent. So doubt installed new drivers will do much good. I do know that intel has newer drivers but not for vmware. Any other suggestions?
6.5.0 Update 1 (Build 5969303)
I updated the drivers:
igbn 1.2.0-1OEM.6188.8.131.5240417 Intel
net-igb 184.108.40.206-1OEM.5220.127.116.118611 Intel
Physical NIC vmnic1 linkstate is down
Physical NIC vmnic2 linkstate is down
Physical NIC vmnic6 linkstate is down
Physical NIC vmnic5 linkstate is down
This all happened at Wednesday, 18, Oct., 10:46:47
Ports vmnic 3 / 4 aren't plugged in right now.
The one is an intel 350 4 port nic vmnic 4 - 6
The other is a ET dual port intel nic vmnic 1 - 2
The other nic is built into the motherboard it's an i211 it doesn't seem to be having the issue.
Any help would be appreciated the link to the dump is still there.
