ESXi7.0U2a のカスタムインストーラ作成


今回はその辺の一般的な PC で作ったため、intel NIC を使ったものの NIC がうまく認識できなかった。マザボは H510M-itx/ac、チップは intel I219V。

I219V は ne1000 ドライバが標準で入っているため、本来であれば認識すると思われるが、うまく動かない模様。NUC10 などでダメだった情報がいくつか出てくる。

なので、そのあたりの修正が入っている Filing のドライバを入れる。


  • PowerCLI
  • Filing コミュニティドライバ
  • ESXi-Customizer
PowerCLI のインストール
VMware PowerCLI - VMware {code}

愛用してる PowerShell core では動かない模様😢

初めて使う場合は PowerShell の実行ポリシーの変更も必要。
