Summaries and Symptoms
This patch fixes the following issues or adds the following enhancements for ESX 3.5 Update 5:
- When the native VLAN on a switch is changed from the default value of 1, the driver that supports Intel PRO/1000 MT and PT NIC drops CDP packets with the new native VLAN tag, and the ESX server does not detect CDP information on Intel MT and PT NICs. For more information, refer KB 1006379.
- Corrects the driver version numbers to be compliant with the standard RPM versioning scheme.
