HP Ethernet 10Gb 2-port 571FLR-SFP+ Adapter + Vmware ESXi Driver

Hi,

 

I just bought HP Ethernet 10Gb 2-port 571FLR-SFP+ Adapter for my DL 380P G8 servers.

 

There is no VMware 5.x driver for this card. 

 

Only SLES and Redhat.

 

normal / not normal ?

 

 

Do I have to change this card or do you developp a Vmware driver ?

 

Kind Regards

Hi,

 

Looks like this card is supported only on RHEL and SuSE.

I am not sure if any one is developing drivers for Windows and VMware.

I am stuck with this problem too- VERY frustrating- are we really saying this card has no VMWare support currently?

thanks- I appreciatet this is not HP's direct issue, but this is not a new card, and one buys HP 'integtated' components in order to enjoy a unified support experience...

Not feeling the love on this at the moment.

Any updates gratefully recieved...

thanks

Graham

Thanks for your answer.

 

From my point of vue, if HP stop to developp driver for VMware you'll have to say it clearly. 

 

Actually we are buying hardware from the same suppliers to avoid problems.

 

So my question is : Will HP developp a driver for this card for ESXi soon ? 

 

Kind Regards.
