Health issue on ESX 6.7 regarding non-native i40e and TSO


There is an issue with the i40e driver that I have preloaded from an earlier HPe install of VMWare. This is currently on a HP DL380 Gen7 server and running VMWare vSphere 6.7.



To uninstall this driver, log inn to the ESXi server with ssh, and run the following command ‘esxcli software vib remove –vibname=net-i40e’, and then you need to reboot the ESXi server.

[root@esx01:~] esxcli software vib remove --vibname=net-i40e
