I have a problem that my nics show a message on two of my "servers"...
similiar to - -

those repeat after each message block...
Any idea on how to solve those...
I use different nic vendors but with the same Realtek RTL8156 chipset.
My ESXi version is 6.7.0 with a Build 15160138 on both servers.

Has any one tried the 1.8 USB Fling driver with 7.0 U3

When I'm building the ISO to do the upgrade, I get this error:

PS C:\users\username\Desktop\build> Add-EsxSoftwareDepot .\

It looks like an updated to the driver is required?

Fling is NOT supported with 7.0 Update 3 (yet)

You will always need a new version of the Fling for major releases, which includes U-releases

Understood William. I assumed that to be the case, but wanted to pop somerthing up on the Comments section so others are aware. Thanks for the quick response. Look forward to seeing the next release of Fling :-)

i Have:

ESXi 6.7 (lasted fling update from this site for 6.7)
2x QNAP QNA-UC5G1T (latest firmware)
Synology NAS DS920+ (lasted driver update for the qnap)

The connections goes down every 5-7 days, anyone runs into similar problem?
