I am having an issue with ESXI 6.5 U3 dropping off of the network during a file transfer. The board I am using has a 4 integrated ports controlled by two Intel 82754L controllers. I have no VMs setup as i am trying to upload the ISO files.
I created a datastore on the raid 1 drive. I can transfer files up to about 5mb just fine but if I try to go above that the ESXI will drop off the network. I created another datastore on one of the 3tb drives and i can transfer a file 50mb but larger that that drops ESXI off the network. Usually ESXI is still responsive through IPMI but sometime it freezes as well. A restart fixes the problem until i try to upload a "large" file again.
This happens on both the web client and using SFTP.
I have tried several of the network ports on the motherboard with the same result.
Version: ESXI 6.5 U3 on Sandisk USB
Motherboard: Supermicro X8SIE-LN4F
Processor: Xeon x3460
LSI 9260-4i with two 2.5 500gb 5200PRM drives in raid 1
2 x Seagate 3tb drives on MB SATA controller
I found a couple of other threads but they were either hitting a 4GB limit in IE or upgraded to version 4.4 and it fixed the issue.
