vSphere 5.x NIC problems

Last week ik blogged about the “Broadcom adapter data corruption on ESXi/ESX hosts using the tg3 driver and TSO enabled” NIC problem. Link This week I found two new vSphere NIC issues worth to mention:

  • Hosts with virtual machines using the E1000/E1000E adapter have networking issues after upgrading to ESXi 5.1 U2 (2072694). Link
  • ESXi 5.x host experiences a purple diagnostic screen mentioning E1000PollRxRing and E1000DevRx (2059053). Link
