Do Github Enterprise virtual appliance supports VMXNET network adapter?


I am configuring my own github enterprise virtual appliance.

I am unable to connect to virtual appliance, and checking with network and appliance team there is no issue.

I have one running Github instance which sits in the same network and it is working.

The only difference is the network adapter used.

Working : E1000

Not-working : VMXNET

Github version both : 2.17.5

I’m reasonably certain that GitHub Enterprise doesn’t get far enough down into things to have incompatibilities with specific PC network adapters. But for more information on this, you should contact Enterprise support at

I hope that helps!
