Installing the HP NC365T in ESX4iU1

The HP NC365T 4 port nic is supported in ESX4iUpdate1 but is not recognized by default.
What I need to do before it is recognized, is to install the Intel driver for this card.

First you need to install the Vmware remote CLI

Next you need to download the right package:


Unzip de ISO en look for in the offline-bundle directory.

Put the zipfile in an easy directory like c:\vmware

Now we need to put the server in maintenance mode before we can install the driver package.

Start the Vmware CLI and use the following command: (do not copy, type instead) –server –install –bundle c:\vmware\

Type your username and password. After this the update is installed you need to reboot the server before he recognized the NIC.
