Synergy 3820C adapter with ESXi 6.5

I am trying to get the Synergy 3820C adapter to work with ESXi 6.5. It's no problem with ESXi 6.0U2, there it works after I run: esxcli fcoe nic discover -n=vmnicX

When trying the same with ESXi 6.5 it just doesn't work. Driver is bnx2fc version 1.713.20.v60.4, Build: 2494585.

Using the HP branded ESXi iso's: www.hpe.com/info/esxidownload 

Server hardware is SY 480 Gen9

Supportmatrix says nothing about 3820C but i put the link here anyways: http://www.hpe.com/info/ossupport
