Just to clarify it is ESXi or ESX that you're using and which oem.tgz file are you using?

I would suggest using the boot from USB method as it'll be a bit easier to mess around with oem.tgz and other drivers.

Before you worry about oem.tgz have you found a driver for ESXi that will support the 8112L?

There are a couple of posts that suggest the 8168 driver should work Ok for the NIC.

Hi,

I have an Asus M4A79 Deluxe

This motherboard also features the Realtek 8112 L NIC

I am able to install a customized version of the ESXi 4.1 installation ISO on my system.

I customized the original ISO using the linux scripts and drivers on this forum (RTL8111_8168_P55_integr_SATA_Ctrl.(AHCI).oem.tgz)

But after i start running the esxi server the management network sometimes just stops responding and the server needs to be rebooted in order to make it work again (restarting the management network does not help)

So i was wondering if anyone has this problem too?

I've seen similar issues posted by other realtek NIC users in the forum. You might try setting the NIC speed and disabling anything in the BIOS that you don't need with ESXi.

Hi Guys,

I know its not ESX help but ESXi, but i just wanted to try my luck.

I have exactly the same card and im trying to find a way to integrate the mentioned above driver into the installation.

I have ESX 4.1 and i cant figure out how could i add the driver from the oem.tgz from the link into the installation ?

Any idea how to do it?

Appreciate any advice ;)
