    Davoud – In this article, you also link to “Network Connection Problem on HPE FlexFabric 650 (FLB/M) Adapter” – that seems to imply that this is the reason (or at least one of many reasons) that the January release of HPE Custom iso VMware-ESXi-7.0.1-17325551-HPE-701.0.0.10.6.3.9-Jan2021.iso is not supported on BL C-Class servers. If a c-Class environment does not have any of these Emulex-based adapters but rather is 100% QLogic/Marvell 630 FLB, is there any reason why VMware-ESXi-7.0.1-17325551-HPE-701.0.0.10.6.3.9-Jan2021.iso would not work properly? I see that the noted January image *does* include MRVL-E3-Ethernet-iSCSI-FCoE–3.0.121.0-1OEM.700.1.0.15525992 which is the latest supported driver for this 630FLB hardware per the HPE Support site as well as the VMware Compatibility Guide.
