Error: vCenter Support Assistant 6.5: This type of network adapter is not supported by {0}Other Linux (64-bit)

Came across an error today on my VM when installing a Linux-based vRouter.

Error says: “This type of network adapter is not supported by {0}Other Linux (64-bit)”

To keep backwards compatibility with previous versions of vCenter Server, the VM hardware was set to version 8 (ESXi 5.0 and later). This choice of the OS is entirely unexpected, as ‘Other Linux (64-bit)‘ was classified as a Legacy operating system by the vendor.

So the workaround would be upgrading the VM to at least hardware version 10, and then chose the compatible OS type. You can do that by setting the compatibility to VM hardware version 10 and change the guest operating system to ‘Other 3.x or later Linux (64-bit)
