We have an HP DL380G7 Server thats been in production for 5 years running VMWare Esxi 5.1. I have just added a new NIC to the server to interface with a new HP MSA 2040 SAN.
I needed to add a secondary riser card to the server to fit this card in as there are already 3 NIC's in the server.
The new NIC is: AJ764A HP FIBRE CHANNEL HBA 8GB DUAL PORT 82Q
In vSphere, when I view Configuration > Network Adapters, I cannot see the new NIC listed.
I double checked the VMWare compatability guide (http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/detail.php?deviceCategory=io&productid=12687) and seems the card is supported and it directed me to the "qla2xxx version 901.k1.1-14vmw" driver.
I am unable to locate this driver, so instead I opted for the following VIB file: QLogic_bootbank_scsi-qla2xxx_922.214.171.124-1.vib
I have installed this VIB and rebooted the server and the NIC is still not seen.
Can someone please point me in the right direction?
