DEVICES deprecated and unsuppoted in ESXi 7.0

Hi.

I have installed esxi 7.0U1 newest patches on two dell r400 - BOSS-S1 Adapter /newest firmware/ .I have HA cluster. and I have strange error . In monitor skyline health there is red exclamation mark by BOSS-S1 Adapter DEVICES  deprecated and unsuppoted in ESXi 7.0 (Beta)

Devices that were only supported in 6.7 or earlier by a VMKlinux inbox driver. These devices are no longer supported because all support for VMKlinux drivers and their devices have been completely removed in 7.0. 

but according VMware Compatibility Guide BOSS S1 Adapter is suported by 7.0U1

https://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/detail.php?deviceCategory=io&productid=46954&vcl=true

REST to green and retest nothing help. Any idea ?

Same problem here with 7u2. Hard to believe that there is no support for an adapter in use everywhere. Wish I'd hung at 6.7 at this point. I'm going to try to update the firmware of the controller. I can find nothing but this post post on the net but we are early in. Hope it's just a bug or a bad April fools joke.. I have a ticket open but the email reply was unhelpful.

Same exact problem.  Very frustrating, our Dell servers are not even 6 months old yet.

Same here in a ESXI 7.0 U1, very odd- considering hosts are less than a year old.

Just to report back, we have several support requests on this topic, and the issue has been forwarded to engineering. It is being investigated.

Well guys, guess what just disappeared from the Skyline health check. BOSS S1 not showing as "unsupported" as of a retest at 9.45am CST 
Seems they may have it sorted as a bug in Skyline. Any further info is always appreciated.

Yes, I just got the confirmation on the bug that the problem was resolved, verified it in my own lab as well. The device ID was incorrectly added to the list unfortunately. Thanks folks for reporting!
