Sorry my english is not so good

I have a 2102 version of ASUS P5Q.
The oem.tgz I've deleted and the ATL1-oem.tgz in
oem.tgz renamed and inserted at this point.
But the nic is not detected.
vendor: 1969
Device: 1063

Your English is just fine.

Are you booting from the CD install or a USB flash drive with ESXi pre-loaded? If using a USB flash drive (you can do the same with the CD install) try this

1) verify that the driver was extracted to /usr/lib/vmware/vmkmod
2) manually load it with vmkload_mod <driver name>
3) check to see if the driver initialized the NIC with esxcfg-nics -l
4) if you don't see the NIC in the output from step 3, look at /var/log/messages to see if there are any errors during the driver load process.

has the driver been compiled for the PCI id of your NIC?

2 fraenzi:
Have you manually added "--- oem.tgz" to boot options?

somebody tried it with Atheros AR8121 PCI-E Gbit LAN? This one is on that mini-ITX mainboard: http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentatio ... 01&pid=319

AR81 Family Linux driver are available here:
http://partner.atheros.com/Drivers.aspx
but how to compile it for esxi?

i wonder if the esxi driver posted in first thread will work with this AR8121 NIC on this miniITX mainboard?

There's a good example here for compiling drivers - http://www.kernelcrash.com/blog/using-a ... 009/08/22/.

Could anyone quickly rebuild the atl1e drivers for the 1969:1063 in stead of the 1969:1023? My Atheros NIC isn't recognized in ESX 4.0. Even with the provided drivers here.

If you don't get a response you can try editing the driver with a hex editor to update the PCI id list in it.

not working on AR8131 NIC
Vendor ID:1969/1063.
I tried to edit PCI ID to 1969:1063, and compiled the TGZ file to OEM.TGZ.
but i cloud not boot ESXi, system syas "the image" corrupted. When restored the original empty OEM file, it booted-up, as expected "no NIC found"

Thanks I just updated to 4.1 (running from USB ) and this oem file enabled my onboard nic.

Just a tips do not add SSH support as the inetd.conf are different in 4.1 then the older version.

The SSH is enabled as default in ESXi 4.1


But I can't get passthru to work :(
