I believe that the problem is because IBM System x3650 M3 do not support vSphere 6.5, see:

If you want keep support with VMware/IBM, I will recommend you downgrade to a supported version.

Kindly check your HBA card model

Down Load Latest drivers and firmware and do the update .

/usr/lib/vmware/vmkmgmt_keyval/vmkmgmt_keyval -a  to check the existing model and firmware details .

My card is listed in there : Devices deprecated and unsupported in VMware ESXi 6.0 (2087970) | VMware KB

I'll try to load the driver manually.

You may update the Firmware as well form vendor site (qlogic / emulex ) etc

# Not one from IBM site
