Installing modules while the ESX is powered on ...
Hi all !
Is there a way to install modules while the ESX server is up and running ?
Of course, it requires a reboot to be sure that they works.
All the tutorials i saw until now was only talking about the famous oem.tgz that require the fact of reinstalling all the OS.
PS : i tried to modify the files pci.ids, simple.map, vmware-devices.map, and adding the good xxxxx.o in the /usr/lib/vmware/vmkmod directory ...
Everytime i reboot the server, the files modified in the /etc/vmware directory switch back to their original versions. The xxxxx.o module stays in its directory.
In fact my question is simple : is there a way to add modules to the ESX/ESXi installation without having to reinstall it ?
