oh the humanity or updating intel nic drivers on esxi 5.5.0
yeah. fun stuff. so vmware, too lazy to update your isos? search through the archives for the correct async ones and unpack the archive and upload the thing called offline-bundle and then scp up to an esxi host - be sure to have ssh service running, is that what you're telling me to do? okay.
