Hello, everyone!

How do I switch the drive mode of a network port from kernel-driven to User-mode driven?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

After the driver mode of the network port on a host is changed to User-mode driven and the network port is used by a DVS, you cannot query and then configure the network port by running the ifconfig or ethtool command after logging in to the system. If Mellanox NICs are used, you can query rather than modify the NIC configurations.

Hello, friend!

1. In the navigation pane, click resource pool.

2. Choose the target host.

3. Click the host accommodating the network port to be changed in the host list.

4. On the Configuration tab page, choose Network > Physical NIC.

5. Locate the row that contains the network port with the driver mode to be changed and choose Enable User-mode Driver.

Hope this helps!
