I have an ESXi 7.0 host that has 4 nics--2 1gb and 2 10gb. I have a recurring problem where the NICS go to a 'down' state over a 2-3 month period. Rebooting resets them which leads me to suspect it is a software driver issue. Using esxcli to mark them 'UP' has no effect.
The hardware is a SYS-5028D-TN4T system.
I've migrated all the VMs off this host so I can play with it at will. Anything I should try before just rebooting it?
