Atom C3758/X553 GbE driver for ESXi 6.5/6.7 |VMware Communities

A few days ago, I bought Atom C3758 based Mother Board.

Unfortunately, ESXi 6.5/6.7 have no inbox driver for X553 GbE.

So I build x553 only driver from ixgbe-5.3.6 linux driver.

I’m using it with following parts.


Asrock Rack C3758D4I-4L

Kingston KVR24R17D4K4/128

Intel ET Dual Port Server Adapter

(initial connection by igb inbox driver)

Transcend JetFlash 720S

SilverStone SST-CS280 / SST-ST45SF


I have tested with IPv4, MTU9000, no VLAN only. (mainly iSCSI connections)

Other setting may cause problems.

However, if you are interested in the driver, try it.


To use this driver:


# esxcli software acceptance set –level=CommunitySupported

# esxcli software vib install -v /tmp/net65-x553-5.3.6.x86_64.vib
