I have ESXi installed on a computer with two ethernet ports, however only one seems to be recognized by the ESXi.
I've followed the procedure of the KB1034782 and both of the network cards are shown in the list and named vmnet0 (8086:15a2), vmnet1 (8086:1539)
They are both on the HCL.
Doing esxcfg-nics -l displays only vmnet0. In vCenter I am also only able to select vmnet0 when I want to add a new vSwitch.
Does anyone else have an idea what to do?
i'm quite new to ESXi, so I apologize in advance if the solution to this is something trivial.
Hi, thank you for your reply.
I reinstalled the drivers on the host, but still have the same problem.
lspci shows both network cards
[root@localhost:~] lspci -v | grep "Class 0200" -B 1

esxcli only one

Is there anything else I can do?
