What method are you using to integrate an oem file into the install ISO? Have you tried Varazir's srcript?

I am sure that's the problem... I just downloaded it, and dropped it into the bootbank, and boom!

Where is this script?

And to be clear, I am trying to install it into an installed ESXi.

Got it working.

Quick question.

My machine has an an intel card with two NICs. And I just added the two onboard Marvel NICs.

Is there any benefit in adding additional Nics to my VMs? or is that pretty much taken care of by the host?

(I am on a gigabit network switch which supports LAG)

Unless you're pushing a lot of network I/O you'll be fine with the ports you have.
If you're not doing a DMZ setup (i.e. all ports on the LAN) then I'd just do a single vSwitch.

I am hosting a NAS, and trying to push around a lot of big files.

And I am not getting close to the bandwidth I would expect.

Disk performance is good.

Or put another way, is it possible to get >1Gb/sec in a VM hosted on a machine with multiple NICs?
