esxi 6.5 to 7 upgrade - no supported network cards

Jump to solution

Hi all

I just ran an upgrade on a host from 6.5 to 7 using life cycle manager and after upgrade it is not seeing the networks card.  it has the  BCM5719 Gigabit Ethernet cards.  It is on the HCL but it was using a tg3 driver on 6.5  (rather than the ntg3, I think this was due to previous driver issue). do you think this is the issue?  Dont the drivers get updated during the esx upgrade?

Thanks

I managed to sort this by changing back to the native driver
