    Questions about intel i219-V esxi driver

    insamoya Lurker

      I have platform with  I219-V network controller:

       

      lspci -v | grep "Class 0200" -B 1

      0000:00:1f.6 Network controller Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection (2) I219-V [vmnic0]

               Class 0200: 8086:15b8

      --

      0000:07:00.0 Network controller Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation I211 Gigabit Network Connection [vmnic1]

               Class 0200: 8086:1539

       

      It is recognized as vmnic0, but it does not work properly when you list NICs:

       

      esxcli network nic list

      Name    PCI Device    Driver  Admin Status  Link Status  Speed  Duplex  MAC Address         MTU  Description

      ------  ------------  ------  ------------  -----------  -----  ------  -----------------  ----  -------------------------------------------------
