On a modern ESXi 5. Since the guest operating system thinks a Flexible adapter is still Vlance, it retains the settings in that case. Using promiscuous mode in the Linux virtual machine leads to resolving the performance issue too because activating this mode leads to disabling LRO. This article helped but additional information was required to resolve my issue. Thanks a lot for this post!

This can be done by connection the the ESXi host with SSH or by simply downloading, changing and uploading the configuration file.
When you select Debian or Ubuntu as Operating System during the creation of virtual machines the wizard automatically selects Eebian as virtual network adapter.
If you experience low performance with the para-virtualized network drivers, verify the setting for the GSO and TSO features on the host system.
Issues with Controller on Debian 9 – (Hard Lockup)
Consider making a copy of the disk before you upgrade one of the two copies to ESX rebian format. A reboot does not activate the configuration.

vmxnet(9) — open-vm-tools — Debian stretch — Debian Manpages
A driver for this NIC is not included with all guest operating systems. A virtual machine configured with this network adapter can use its network immediately.
What can we do to improve this information? VMware tools installed in guest OSs are v8.
denian Try changing ethernet driver settings. Preetam February 18, at 5: Typically Linux versions 2. The Flexible network adapter identifies itself as a Vlance adapter when a virtual machine boots, but initializes itself and functions as either a Vlance or a VMXNET adapter, depending on which driver initializes it.
This simply locks up the system. I have forgot to remove the virtual machine from inventory Sep 9, Last Updated: English Japanese Chinese Simplified.
I can consistenly have the controller lock the machine up completely. This article helped but additional information vmxndt3 required to resolve my issue. By example, in the PowerCLI you will have the following error:
