I don't have another quad card as a reference, but the Broadcom QLogic 57800 is a 2 x 10GbE + 2 x 1GbE quad card, which has sequential MACs and same PCI slot, but shows up as two dual adapters in ESXi 6.

Is this normal? I'm seeing other oddities and am wondering if there's a VIB/driver issue.


There may be a need to change the firmware of the NICS take a look here - http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=THCKX

  • Are you certain that this isn't by design, quad NIC showing as 2 interfaces?
