I just installed esxi 4.1 onto 2 vmware host. I am only seeing one of the nics and not the other one. The nics are HP nics in an HP server. In the past I did not have to do anything to get it to see both nics. Is there something I need to do to get it to see the second nic?

Are the NICs on the HCL?

Try different slots?

Try reseating the NICs?

Remove the network cable, or connect a network cable at power on!

I resolved the issue by having to reinstall the drivers for the nic via the cli from my laptop to the host,.
