Large files corrupt after downloading on to ESX servers

cwstad2 used Ask the Experts™
Hi all, strange problem. We were trying to deploy some packags via sccm to our ESX servers which in turn failed, but only on the virtual servers. We tried to download a 140 MB zip file which downloads ok but then corrupts on completion. The downloads work over a wifi link but seems to corrupt when connecting over out satellite links. Any ideas as it only seems to affect our ESX boxes.

if you are using the legacy network cards, switch them to VMXNET3, make sure you have VMware Tools installed to add this new network interface card.
