Is this hardware on the VMware HCL ?

Check the VMware Hardware Compatability Lists HCL here

The VMware Hardware Compatibility List is the detailed lists showing actual vendor devices that are either physically tested or are similar to the devices tested by VMware or VMware partners. Items on the list are tested with VMware products and are known to operate correctly.Devices which are not on the list may function, but will not be supported by VMware.

If this hardware, which is homebrew, home lab is NOT on the HCL, you will either need to find a driver which has been compiled for ESXi 6.5, or purchase a network interface which is on the HCL.
