I'm using Orion 9.5 SP3 to monitor some virtual Windows servers runnning on vSphere \ ESX 4.0 cluster. Note: Orion is running on a vitual machine.
I've just upgraded the vm machines to the version 7 of the virtual machine 'hardware' (including the Orion vm). This has allowed me to deploy the new virtual nic driver (vmxnet3 ) on these vm's
I'm having 2 problems:
1. vmxnet3 port speed is begin reported as either 1.4 or 4.3 gbps. The underlying physical nic is 1gbps.
2. Some of the vmxnet3 nics have an unknown status.
Umm : ok ignore the unknown status issue. They've all showing an 'up' status now. Just need to be patient...
