vSphere 6 - critical VMXNET3 bug

With vSphere 6 update 2 VMware fixed several bugs but also introduced a new one. Update 2 includes a critical bug in the VMXNET3 vNIC that can produce PSODs (purple screen of death). The problems occur if:


  • the VM is running virtual hardware version 11
  • the VM is configured with VMXNET3 virtual nic
  • Large Receive Offload (LRO) for VMXNET3 NICs is enabled

Currently there is no resolution but a workaround. All details are published in KB2144968.
