Unfortunately I believe it is the same driver.

Trick has a thread here for rolling your own driver.. viewtopic.php?f=34&t=4340

if you can look in your vmkernel.log for anything relevant, it could be helpful..

As you can see, we were in this same position on page 7 of this thread. That might help you gain insight to where we need to go..

Hi I am looking at using the asix usb nic adapter described in this thread. My approach is similar to what AdamK was originally looking to implement as close as possible enterprise esxi solution using a macmini

I am struggling at how I need to install the v25 files provided by TrickStarter. I was able to add the mod files in the /usr/lib/vmware/vmkmod/ directory. But, I dont see the nic in the network config.

Any suggestions or lead in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

Great work on this collaboration.

Ok so I got the mod loaded and successfully see the nic adapter. But, I am having trouble having the driver stick after I do the vmkload_mod /path/driver in the /usr/bin/vmware/vmkmod directory. Any suggestions on what I need to make it stick? Thanks again for all the great work done to accomplish this.

Are you wanting it to persist across reboots?

Is there any chance of getting the source code for the modified driver and usbnet? I'd really like to get the Asix AX88772 series driver supported but I can't work out how to get around some unsupported functions. As these functions also exist in this driver the changes may be adaptable for the other driver.

@AdamK Yes, I am looking to add it so that it is persistent on reboots. I created a moved the scratch location to the datastore where the ESXi OS sits, but cant seem to get it work.

I like you work for a non-profit organization that is trying to use this setup to migrate aging Xserve's over to this platform. Thanks again for your help and response.

Try the ESX-Customizer. It might work to actually install the driver.. http://www.v-front.de/p/esxi-customizer.html?m=1

Hello !

You have done a wonderful work (I've not read all 22 pages).

I've tried your last release (26) on my ESXi 5.5 and it does not work :

Code:
2014-02-12T18:42:04.214Z cpu3:44750)Loading module usbnetvz025 ...
2014-02-12T18:42:04.214Z cpu3:44750)Elf: 1861: module usbnetvz025 has license GPL
2014-02-12T18:42:04.214Z cpu3:44750)WARNING: Elf: 2037: Load of <usbnetvz025> failed : missing required namespace <com.vmware.usb#9.2.1.0>


And of course, the com.vmware.usb is 9.2.2.0 in 5.5 !

What can we do ? Do we have to re-compile module ?

Thanks a lot !

Hello everybody !
Nice job !
I tried to load your module on my ESXi 5.5 and it does not work, because of different version of usbnet module.
I tried to recompile the driver by myself but get the same issues as you.
Can you provide a release for 5.5 or give me the build file you created/used ? Many thanks !
