This is an issue that has been bugging me for a lot time with ESXi. I had the issue with my old Dell server (ESXi 5.0 and 5.5) and even with my new Dell T20 (ESXi 5.5).
For the current issue at hand I will only focus on the new Dell T20 server, to avoid confusion.
Whenever I try to upload something from my Windows 7 PC to any VM on the servers, I don't get more than 3-5 MB/s.
Hey guys so I have a few 10ge SUN ATL2XGE cards and would like to use them in ESXi 5.5. By default ESX will not recognize the card due to missing drivers, after some poking around on the internet it turns out VMware did support these cards in 3.5 - 4.1 versions of ESX.
I'm stumped and I hope someone else will recognize the symptoms of this problem.
Hardware: new Dell T110 II, dual-core Pentium G860 2.9 GHz, onboard SATA controller, one new 500 GB 7200 RPM cabled hard drive inside the box, other drives inside but not mounted yet. No RAID. Software: fresh CentOS 6.5 virtual machine under VMware ESXi 5.5.0 (build 174 + vSphere Client). 2.5 GB RAM allocated.
So this has been driving me nuts for a good couple of hours, so I thought I'd ask about it here (let me know if there's a better forum for this question).
I have a CentOS Virtual Machine on ESXi. I was trying to configure the network interface because it wasn't working, so I changed the file /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 to the right IP address/gateway/netmask/MAC ID etc.
