I ran an analysis on vSphere esxi 6.7 U3 hosts.
SHD showed that according to VCG there is a new driver for the intel 82599EB cards.
When i follow the link and download the driver. The driver shows it is for esxi 6.5
In the readme file of the driver, it tells :
Copyright(c) 2013 - 2021 Intel Corporation
This release includes the native ixgben VMware ESX Driver for Intel(R) Ethernet
Controllers 82599, x520, x540, x550 and x552 family
Driver version: 22.214.171.124
Supported ESXi release: 6.5
Compatible ESXi versions: 6.7 7.0
But you can't install this driver with VUM on ESXi 6.7 hosts...
How to proceed??
@brtlvrs SHD suggests the drivers as listed on the VCG. As of 17/jun/21 latest available driver for this device on 6.7 U3 line is ixgben version 126.96.36.199. SHD just validates the ESXi Version. Driver version against this. Though the driver says ESXi-65;**, it is the driver listed even for 6.7 U3
