Hi, what's the network adapter you use in your R720? Dell provides Customized VMware ESXi images which contains the latest drivers for different category of adapters.

But If you use VMware ESX 4.1 Update2 image on R720, you need to provide the drivers during installation using the 'Custom Drivers addition' option. The driver are available in VMware download page<https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/info/slug/datacenter_cloud_infrastructure/vmware_vsphere/4_1#drivers_tools>.

For example: If you are using Broadcom 5719/5720 network adapter, download the driver<https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/details?downloadGroup=DT-ESX4x-Broadcom-tg3-3123bv401&productId=230> from VMware download page.

Thanks,
Krishnaprasad
