Post Util:874: Failed trying to get a valid VMKernel MAC address:
Hi!

I have the same problem that Trevor have on a HP DL140.

I've managed to get ESXi to work on an HP DL140 with an IDE drive after following the above, but I can't get the NIC to work.
This is the info I got from lspci:
02:00.00 Ethernet controller Network controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5704 Gigabit Ethernet [vmnic0]
Class 0200: 14e4:1648
02:00.01 Ethernet controller Network controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5704 Gigabit Ethernet [vmnic1]
Class 0200: 14e4:1648

What I can see in the documentation the NIC should be supported.
In the messages log there was some references to "Util:874: Failed trying to get a valid VMKernel MAC address: Failure. Various vmkernel susystems will provide lower quality of service. please add-configure VMKernel NICs"

Someone find a solution to this problem yet?
Regards
Fred

If you run lspci -p, is a module listed for the 2 NICs? Also any error messages in /var/log/messages.

When I run the install CD and run lspci -p in "Tech Support Mode" then can see that the 2 nics showing there.

02:00:00 14e4:1648 14e4:1648 5/ / A V tg3 vmnic0
02:00:01 14e4:1648 14e4:1648 11/ / A V tg3 vmnic1

If I check in console "alt+F11" then I can see this errors

0:00:00:02.637 cpu0:1024)PCI: 2390: failed for 000:15.2

After install the and boot up then see the following "red" errors in the log.

Is this on a DL140? Have you tried the update 4 install CD and are the firmware on the NICs updated?

Yes, it is on a DL140. I use ESXi 3.5 U4 as install CD, even tried the U3 also. I upgrade the BIOS to 05506T03. When push ctrl +s when start up I see the Broadcom NetXtream Ethernet Boot Agent v7.0.1 menu.

Check out viewtopic.php?f=4&t=779&start=10. I was having the same issues and found an apparent workaround.
