I am trying to find what was fixed in esxi 5.5 fnic driver version 126.96.36.199.
I see 188.8.131.52 is still supported but want to know if there is a reason I should update to 184.108.40.206
I don't see the fix in below mentioned release notes...
Note 53: The FNIC driver has been updated to resolve a known issue. It is recommended to update the driver. For more details, please refer to the VIC release notes: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/unified_computing/ucs/release/notes/VIC/2-2/vicdrivers_22_rn.html
Can you please give us more detailed information !
e.g. which UCS version, ESXi version, blade model ?

I am at fw 2.2 8b with B200 m4 and cna 1340. But I am not sure that matters as I am only looking for the list of fix(s) in the newer driver. Must be a bug fix id or documented somewhere...:)
Both drivers are supported in the interoperability matrix.

Thanks Walter, I did see those two defect id's that pertain to the version of fnic driver I am currently running.
But I don't see anything stating if they are fixed in the newer fnic version 220.127.116.11. Or what issues this newer fnic driver address's. Downloading the release notes for the driver contains no helpful information either :(
It looks like the new drivers contains no fixes but adds support for the VIC 1285 and a new feature "FC Control Path Tracing"
See below from the ESXi driver release notes, these are in the zip file driver download.
