    Issues Hypervisor install due to network card issue and ESXi Customizer fails

    JamesTav Lurker

      Good day,


      I am an absolute novice with VMWare and want to build a test bench environment.


      I have tried to do an install of VMware vSphere Hypervisor 7.0 but that failed due to the network card not being found/compatible.


      After some research I found the ESXi Customizer PS and have been trying to create an ISO with my network card driver included,,,, but the script times out.


      Script commands I have tried are:

      .\ESXi-Customizer-PS-v2.6.0 -v67 -load net-r8168 -outDir G:\ -log G:\ESXi-Customizer-PS.log -nsc

      .\ESXi-Customizer-PS-v2.6.0 -v67 -load net-r8168 -outDir C:\Users\james\Desktop\ESXI -log C:\Users\james\Desktop\ESXI\ESXi-Customizer-PS.log -nsc

      .\ESXi-Customizer-PS-v2.6.0 -v67 -load net-r8168 -pkgDir C:\Users\james\Desktop\ESXI\Driver -outDir G:\ -log G:\ESXi-Customizer-PS.log -nsc


      The script proceeds well and then always seems to fail at the same point...

      An unexpected error occured:

      [WinError 10054] An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host


      I have attached a copy of the log file for your info.


      Thanks in advance for the assistance.


      Regards James
