Hi guys,

I am new to ESXi, spent many hours these couple days on ESXi 3.5 and still no way to make it work. Here is my case and what I did:

I got Marvel Yukon gigabit NIC 88E0001 (11ab:4320)on ASUS P4P800-E DELUXE mother board, installed ESXi 3.5 U5 via DVD on IDE HDD (by the tricky method vm-help provides ;) ). The when the ESXi boot, I got on NIC and it's the case listed on the 3.5 COMMON issue, due to the NIC is not support by ESXi3.5; I also got LVMDRIVER LOAD FAILED error, according the 3.5 common issue, this error should be due to NIC too.

Then based on my search on this website, I take the sky2.o file and get it upload to ESXi partition1(with the help of Slax live cd), the sky2.o is from here:


The I try to load the sky2.o by vmkload but I got symbol unknown error, seems as this link below metioned, the source code of sky2.o has no include my 11AB:4320


Any input will be appreciated!!

The driver from the first link was compiled for ESXi 4.0. It won't be compatible with ESXi 3.5.

Thanks for your reply. Do you have any solution or workaround? I have 3 88E0001 NIC and want to use them all in ESXi 3.5 (all old CPU, 32bit, so no way to install ESXi 4.0)

I found the same drivers on the link below, same as the reader comments, I confirm that the NIC is using SKGE drivers on linux, not SKY2. Tried the SKGE.O the author provided in the comment sector, no luck.

The one on the page you got was probably compiled for ESX(i) 4.0. You would have to get one for 3.5.
