comment MSSQL High Availability Advice Required
In that case just setup the cluster as normal and expose the server's IPs and the cluster object IP and point clients to them.

comment MSSQL High Availability Advice Required
You don't mention which SQL product you wish to use, if this was an MSSQL solution you could simply expose the Cluster VIP and allow it to load-balance itself - if it's another product the answer will vary with that choice.

What exact version of ESXi have you got - 8.1 is only supported in the very latest version which was only released about two weeks ago - could be the issue?

Well certainly HP's driver set would help to set that up correctly, and obviously you won't have that installed, that said I'm kind of surprised it's not just information the OS gets from the BIOS - are you up to date with the BIOS?
