  • 1.  Lenovo LOM nics not seen by esxi host

    Posted Feb 02, 2024 01:19 PM

    Our new Lenovo hosts use 10gb  4 port spf + lom nics (7ZT7A00547) but esxi hosts on 8.0 Update 2 do not see the nic.  I have tried the drivers for this on the following thread but they still do not appear after reboot.

    the host can see the two 10/25 gb e810 cards just not the nics on the LOM mentioned above.

    What am i missing to get esxi to see these nics?

    Lenovo released an custom image on 25th of january, did you used the image to install the host?

    Resetting cmos jumper allowed host to see the lom adapter, nothing to do with esxi.
