DL350G8 VMware vSphere 5 U1 does not recognize P420i Controller

Hi,

 

I want to Install VMware vSphere5 U1 (VMware iso CD) on a ML350G8. It does not see the P420i controller. Do I add an extra driver for that? If yes how can I di this?

 

Thanks for your help!

Hi,

 

Refer to this link for OS compatibility.

http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/vmware/supportmatrix/hpvmware.html

 

Point to be noted: Successful installation of the VMware operating system requires either the HP custom ESXi image or an OS image can be created with VMware's ImageBuilder application that has, at minimum, appropriate device drivers to support the boot controller and at least one network device in the server. A list of drivers included in the HP Custom Image is available here.

Good Luck!

You either can add hp drivers to the image or can use HP Image
-------------------------------

The HP custom images are available at software depot as well .

For ESXi 5.0 we have a 5.0 image and a 5.0 U1 image. They are both available via the link below:
https://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=HPVM09

For ESXi 4.1 U2 we have a custom image and it is available at the link below:
https://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=HPVM06

The link below points to the tables that list the items that HP has included in each image:

The individual software components are being posted on HP.com and are already available at the HP VIBs Depot website:
