When you add an existing ESX 2. To build kernel module is needed kernel-devel package and its dependencies. This article discusses the different network adapter options available for virtual machines. Consider making a copy of the disk before you upgrade one of the two copies to ESX 3 format. So, this leads me to believe that my kernel and driver are configured, compiled, and functioning correctly. Additional Information For translated versions of this article, see:

VMXNET 3 is supported only for virtual machines version 7 and later, with a limited set of guest operating systems. To request a new product feature or to provide feedback on a VMware product, please visit the Request a Product Feature page.

Cfntos I am seeing is normal packet flow, then the workstation just starts to retransmit packets, then the connection is terminated. For more information on network types, see Understanding networking types in hosted products I have spent the last 3 days googleing cfntos info on this problem and have not found a solution.

I’ve done the following: Network adapter choices depend on the version number and the guest operating system running on cejtos virtual machine. This machine has a supermicro X5DA8 motherboard with dual xeons, an onboard gigabit card, and an additional gigabit card we’ve put in it it’s on two network simultaneously.

I have installed CentOS 6. I tried with a different switch with same result.

Choosing a network adapter for your virtual machine ()

Here is the info you requested: Guest operating systems, see the VMware Compatibility Guide. Forgot to mention that. I do have a Linux guy here on staff, centis he’s helped me figure some of this out.

Did you ever figure it out? It doesn’t matter if there’s a cable plugged into this ethernet port cengos not, so it’s not a bad cable or switch. So we’re totally hosed, because we can’t even try most of the ideas offered, except turning off acpi at boot, which doesn’t help.

I am going to use tcpdump and look at the network traffic from the box to see if anything looks unusual. One of the things that disturbs me is that all of the articles I have found concerning this problem are dated years ago. I have exact same problem with another machine: Line for me. Im going to lose my mind! Would you recommend maybe creating a NIC team, instead? I reinstalled CentOS 5. Copy To Clipboard copy external link to clipboard copied!


Use the FAQ Luke. I increased the console logging and I can see when the ethernet port goes up and down when I physically disconnect the cenyos, but it does not go down or lose link when the disconnects occur. Plus, this worked fine before centos went on there, so I have a feeling it’s centls of bigger problems. Also, since moving to CentOS, I stopped building kernels.

To build kernel module is needed kernel-devel package and its dependencies. No such file or directory I assume this is because I’m referencing the cdrom incorrectly, but I don’t know how to do it correctly. Board index All times are UTC.

Available Network Adapters Only those network adapters that are appropriate for the virtual machine you are creating are available configuration options in the Choose Networks window.

I ended up scrapping the 4 cards and going with Netgear cards which use the realtek driver, and work without a hitch! Full time Geek, part time moderator.
