No FC HBA on my BL460c Gen9 with Virtual Connect FlexFabric-20/40 F8 Module

I have a C7000 chassis configured as follow:

Device Bay 1: BL460c Gen9 with HP FlexFabric 20Gb 2-port 630FLB Adapter;

Device Bay 2: BL460c Gen9 with HP FlexFabric 20Gb 2-port 630FLB Adapter;

Interconnect Bay 1 : HP VC FlexFabric-20/40 F8 Module with port X1: 10Gb LR (representing shared uplink set 1), port X2: 8GB SW FC (representing SAN_A)

Interconnect Bay 2 : HP VC FlexFabric-20/40 F8 Module with port X1: 10Gb LR (representing shared uplink set 2), port X2: 8GB SW FC (representing SAN_B)

When creating server profiles, Ehernet Adapters works fine and appear in ESXi 6.5 but there is no option to add FC HBA, only FCoE HBA is available and when used, no HBA are seen in the OS (ESXI 6.5)

NB: I'm trying to configure single hop FCoE only (from blade server to VC) not dual or multihop configuration.

Any thoughts?

Try to install Custom HPE ISO for vSphere 6.5, which includes all hardware drivers and agents.

I've tried the same setup as you but with vSphere 6.0 and had no problems at all.

Good Luck

Hi

As mentioned up, use HP custom image and if it is still not working try the below,
