VMXNET3 on Windows server 2008 R2 guest (ESX vSPhere 4.0) - driver problems?

2 different windows server 2008 std. x64 R2; 1 works great (the DC), and the second one (Exch 2010) refuses to install it - it's been displayed in the device manager as faulty.

Any ideas? Thx

Hi

I have seen this sometimes with Windows 2008 R2. The only option was, remove the adapter(from the VM) and check that in the Windows there was no network adapter, after a reboot, install the adapter again in the VM, then in the Windows reboot again, then check the Network Adapter in the Windows and configure.

This is what I did to fix this problem. I have encounter this problem 3 or times.

Hi BestWay:
I have the same error on a windows 2008 server.
We use vsphere 4.0 on ESX 4.0 and on some machines the vmxnet3 driver is not working.
I have no network connectivity.

Do you have a clue ?
