Re: DeLL X710 / VMware ESXi 6.5u1 - Malicious Driver Detection Event Occured

Jump to solution

Hi Guys

The issue has occured once more this moment.

i40en 1.4.3 is NOT the solution for that problem, at least not with DELL X710 10GBE rNDC NICs FW 18.0.17

HI Martingreiner,

 

 

Thank you for the update. Just to double check if you are referring using Dell OEM X710? The firmware version you have is different. Have you tried contacting Dell* to check with them as well?

 

 

Thanks,

 

Sharon

Hi Martingreiner,

 

 

Please feel free to provide me more information about your setup and NIC information.

 

 

What is the serial number of your X710, please look for the serial# on the physical NIC with the format of 16 alphanumeric + 6 alphanumeric + 6 digits -3 digits

 

 

Looking forward to your reply.

 

 

Thanks,

 

Sharon

Hi Sharon

I am sorry, but I can not find the serial-number in any interface I have access to (ESXi, DRAC)

I have no access to the hardware at the moment and can not take a physical look on the NIC.

This is all information I can get out about the NIC:

Hi Martingreiner,

 

 

Thank you for the information. This is an OEM NIC and the firmware version is very different, I would recommend you to contact Dell* for customized driver which might be of help.

 

 

Thanks,

 

Sharon

Hi Martingreiner,

 

 

Have you check with Dell yet? I will also try to further check for you if there is any finding.

Hi Sharon

Yes, I am in contact with DELL.

They have replaced my Intel rNDC NIC with one from QLogic (Broadcom).

We are testing this for two weeks and will replace all NICs if the tests could be passed without issues!

I will keep you up to date about the results.
