Do July-2019 MLX drivers for ESXi v6.7 contain the fix for the ConnectX-3 Pro NFS hangup bug?

We were running ESXi 6.5 and ran into the NFS* bug with our ConnectX-3 Pro interfaces. The fix was put into nmlx4_en 3.16.11.10 and it seemed to work fine for us. We have since upgraded to ESXi v6.7 and it appears this same bug (or one very similar) is back. Is there anyway to tell if whatever got fixed in nmlx4_en 3.16.11.10 is currently fixed in 3.17.13.1-1vmw (the latest available driver)? Symptoms are identical.

*For more details on the NFS bug, see VMware KB 60421.

Why is ConnectX-3 Pro no longer listed on the Mellanox driver page for ESXi 6.7 support?

Hi Kenneth,

You can refer to the following link in order to check compatibility of VMware products.

Please note that both ConnectX-3 and ConnectX-3 Pro are supported by the vmare inbox driver.

For more information please contact VMWare as they will be able to provide you with further info (it’s their driver).

Regards,

Chen
