I recently installed a PCIe parallel port into one of our ESXi hosts so I could migrate an old PC onto it that requires a parallel port dongle. I'm having a problem though, because I cannot add the port to a VM because the option I need is grayed out.
My processor does not have support for VT-d, so that option is out also. Is there no way to make use of PCI devices that are installed on the host? My NICs seem to work fine so I figured adding a parallel port shouldn't be much different.
Is there any way to get this thing working?
