    Atom C3758/X553 GbE driver for ESXi 6.5/6.7

    daoyama Lurker

      A few days ago, I bought Atom C3758 based Mother Board.

      Unfortunately, ESXi 6.5/6.7 have no inbox driver for X553 GbE.

      So I build x553 only driver from ixgbe-5.3.6 linux driver.

      I'm using it with following parts.


      Asrock Rack C3758D4I-4L

      Kingston KVR24R17D4K4/128

      Intel ET Dual Port Server Adapter

      (initial connection by igb inbox driver)

      Transcend JetFlash 720S

      SilverStone SST-CS280 / SST-ST45SF


      I have tested with IPv4, MTU9000, no VLAN only. (mainly iSCSI connections)

      Other setting may cause problems.

      However, if you are interested in the driver, try it.


      To use this driver:


      # esxcli software acceptance set --level=CommunitySupported

      # esxcli software vib install -v /tmp/net65-x553-5.3.6.x86_64.vib
