ESXI 6.5 and I350-T4


Active Member
So My VM ware setup has been running fine with "fake" i350's

I upgraded one of my test nodes to 6.5 and cannot seem to get the NICs to detect, but they are known good.

I tried installing a couple of driver packs and rebooting/rescan still no luck.

It seems like 5.5 (not u2) is the last officially supported release, true?
I recall with one of the 5.x releases you could keep realtek/broadcome by first installing an older version then upgrading. Can you still do that somehow? From my 5.1 disk (I slipped some 3ware drivers into this disk) I coule goto 5.5 but it will not let me upgrade to 6.5

Is there some trick I am missing?
