MSI X399 GAMING PRO CARBON AC ESXI 6.5 Update 1 Issues

Jump to solution

I was referred to these forums by a global moderator from MSI.     Vmware esxi 6.5 update 1 stability issues.

Full Specs:

AMD 1950X Threadripper

128 GB DDR4 2133 CL15 DRX8  ECC UDIMM from Crucial

1TB M.2 Samsung Pro

Nvidia 1050 Passively Cooled gpu

LSI 9361-4I

Supermicro 24 Bay Server Case

msi x399 gaming pro carbon

4 port intel server nic 350 series

I tried 4 different kind of server nics and none of them seem to work correct.   Here is an attached PSOD I'm needing to figure out what's going on.   If there is a fix etc.   If you want a support dump I can provide that also.

Just to let you know the MSI motherboard was to blame.   I am running an ASUS X399 Prime-A motherboard no issues at all now.   There is a bios issue with that motherboard since the nic I had on that board didn't work.    Though on the new motherboard they work great!!

Please can you provide a bit more information? For example, what Motherboard bios verison are you using, is it the latest?

What is the exact model number of the memory DIMMS you are using?

MSI X399 GAMING PRO CARBON AC

revision is 7B09v15

Crucial Technology CT4K16G4WFD8213 Specifications

Worked with the manufacture when it came to the memory since I needed ECC and 128 Gigs of ram.

As a troubleshooting step, please can you try a lower memory frequency, such as 1866Mhz?
