Hi I am just starting to use Esxi and I have a problem with USB Nic Fling.

Startech usb nic is recognised by host but does work.

Esxi 7u2 on NUC10.

vswitch with vusb0 as uplink. portgroup external. TTYlinux to portgroup external.

I cannot get an IP address.

How can I debug this?

Tried to look at
esxcli network nic stats get -n vusb0
NIC statistics for vusb0
Packets received: 0
Packets sent: 1046

This shows the NIC does not receive anything???

Is this a known problem??

kind regards,

In the "Persisting USB NIC Bindings" section of the instructions, if I am using TWO usb nics, do I simply copy the code a second time and change the usb0 to usb1?

Also would the copied code go before:


esxcfg-vswitch -R

Anyone stuck here as well ?? Trying to remove v17078334 on host in maintenance mode and all USB NICs removed..

[root@lola:~] esxcli software vib remove -f --vibname=vmkusb-nic-fling
Failed to copy files from /tmp/stagebootbank to /altbootbank: [Errno 5] Input/output error
cause = [Errno 5] Input/output error
Please refer to the log file for more details.

IO error seems to indicate some FS transactions that failed or such..
Thanks for any inputs.

1- vim-cmd hostsvc/firmware/backup_config
2- install 7.02a from scratch (let's hope that the CVE rain will stop)
3- vim-cmd hostsvc/firmware/restore_config

it has been a little rough honestly...

But thanks, appreciate your efforts on the provided driver !
