False positive on vSphere-PSODPktListPop-KB#87489

This weekend I got a notification for finding ID vSphere-PSODPktListPop-KB#87489, which indicates that my qfle3 driver needs to be updated. The package in the KB includes version 1.4.25 for qfle3, and I am already on 1.4.35.

@doddsington, please confirm the KB article that you are referring to? With the KB number you've got, it takes us to this KB? Here, I see the Qlogic driver version discussed are 2.0.182.0 for ESXi 6.7 and Version 3.0.182.0 for ESXi 7.0.


If you think your queries have been answered, Mark this response as "Correct" or "Helpful".

Yes, that is the correct KB. Qlogic's "version" is a package version, none of the drivers are actually numbered that. The 3.0.182 package for ESXi 7.0 includes qfle3 driver version 1.4.25.

I too am scratching my head on this one

Why did we get this notice in Dec 2022 when the driver and solution are listed as 12/23/21?

I'm having the exact same issue as well with Skyline showing the this critical finding. I opened up a support case and they are investigating. My driver is also 1.4.35, which is newer than the KB even links to. Support said it is probably a bug in Skyline but they need to dig further and get back to me. They said a few others have reported it too.

This finding disappeared from my Skyline console. I think they fixed it?
