BOO-YAH!

I had to make a few code changes to get it to load completely. I worked around the problem, rather then fixing it directly. I would love to get a proper fix in, so a fresh set of eyes are welcome(source code without workaround provided above).

In the end, I had to regress 6 lines of code(vmalloc_node, I went back to using an older method of vmalloc used in 1.1.19), and remove 8 lines(_kc_print_hex_dump, its used when an adapter is reset to dump the buffer for debugging purposes, so for most people, I felt safe to get rid of it). Other than that and the required esxi/vmkernel centric changes required, its 1.3.10a goodness.

Having said that, its HOT off the presses, it may be buggy as hell, cause your system to crash, etc etc, so I provide it AS-IS.I tried to put in as many pci.id's, but might of missed a few. Anything 1.3.10a supports, this driver should work with as well. All that might need to done is to modify/create your own simple.map/pci.id.

Let me know if you have any issues, if your device isn't detected or whatever comments you want to throw my way. OEM.tgz file is provided in a spilt rar file below.

Enjoy! :D

[EDIT]Fixed simple.map to include 8086:1503 Intel 82579V - No other changes - No need to re-download unless you don't know how to edit simple.map yourself and need the 82579V support.

[EDIT-2]Updated simple.map and pci.ids using latest versions from 4.1u1

[EDIT-3]Updated simple.map and pci.ids with additional data(8086:0000 sub-vendor for 82579V)



It doesn't work on ASUS p8p67 82579V. Could you help me make one? How to find this 8086:0000 map?

Thanks

I would start first with trying to load the driver manually. vmkload_mod <driver_name>

If it doesn't work that way (you can using esxcfg-nics -l to see if ESXi can see the NIC after loading the driver manually) then a change to the simple.map file won't help.

Thanks, Could you make OEM.tgz file for Network card 82579V on ESXI 5.0? Thanks

Which are you using? ESXi 4.x or 5? The drivers are different so you can't use a 4.x with 5.

I was using it for


000:000:25.0 Ethernet controller Network controller: Intel Corporation 82579LM Gigabit Network Connection [vmnic0]
Class 0200: 8086:1502

And today I found my esx5 frozen .
Could be the network driver?
On the same day I lost connectivity many times, after a reboot it seems to be working fine again.

I do believe so, as I also found my ESX frozen today.
I also noticed my switch was lighting up as a christmas tree and it didn't revert back to normal (mostly inactive) until I power-cycled the ESXi box.

Unfortunately, my scratch disk was on a RAM-disk so I lost all log information during the reboot :(
Lesson learned .. Going forward, the syslog dir is now reconfigured to persistent storage, so next time this happens I'll hopefully have something interesting in the logs, which might help Chilly pin-point the problem.

PS. I started a 12-hour file scan yesterday, of an off-box directory over CIFS (from one of the VMs) and that probably triggered the ESXi lockup. I'll restart that job now and see if I can force the same system lockup.

First I've heard of it freezing the host, but there's been some reported issues with the ESXi 5.0 driver. I'll be taking a hard look at the code and cleaning it up, hopefully post an update in the next month or two. :)

The issue seems to come up more often when jumbo frames are on, so avoid using jumbo frames if possible with the ESXi 5.0 driver.

Beyond that, I need log files! While I've heard of more than one person having various issues, I have gotten zero log files, which will make the issues difficult to track down. Help me, help you! ;)

I dont need jumbo packets, So good work

I think I ve disabled that , because now it seems to be stable.

I cant provide logs because I dont know where to look,
I got esxi5 installed on a pendrive and i think the logs arent being stored.

Thank you

Would be cool the post here the command to disable jumbo frames

I was downlaoded the files with oem.tgz and create ISO with 82579V driver support, but... when i try to install the ESXi i'm get an error: "Failed to load lvmdriver". This error was appears at ESXi 4.0*...
With ESXi 4.1* i have an this error: "Unable to find the system image to install"

Please help... I need to install the ESXi on this configuration.
And by the way I can use any version of ESXi 4.0-5.1...

P.S. Configration of hardware:
CPU: i5-2500k
MEM: 16gb ddr3-1600
HDD: OCZ Vertex
LAN: Intel 82579V gigabit network adapter
BIOS: AMI

I was tried to install ESXi 4.0* and 4.1* but fail with failed to load lvmdriver...
I press ALT+F1 and login as root with empty password, then i try to vmkload_mode e1001e and it's done!

I type: esxcfg-nic -l
And vmnic0 is my network adapter, but on install the ESXi don't see them...
There is a problem with sample.* or something else?

Network card is Intel 82579V gigabit network adapter.
