Solution

Summaries and Symptoms

Wake on LAN (WOL) is properly enabled for Broadcom NICs that have WOL support. This patch provides the software driver portion of the fix. See bundle ESX350-200903206-UG for the backup tools portion of the fix.

Known issue: Executing the ethtool vmnic* command in the service console displays WOL as supported for all NetXen NICs, even those that do not support WOL.

Deployment Considerations

None beyond the required patch bundles and reboot information listed in the table, above.
