Pinned topic X240 - Vmware ISO from IBM web site

‏2012-11-06T17:36:57Z |
Hi,

I've try to install an x240 with the Vmware iso from the IBM site, normally with all IBM drivers.
The Vmware boot correctly, byt no HBA FC SAN found, my HBA is a Brocade 16 Go FC.

Anybody have some ideas ?

Thanks

    IBM hosts their ISO here - http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/x/os/vmware/index.html

      Hi,

      It's vSphere 5.0.1
      But I think it"s normal this drivers, for the 16Go FC card are not include in any version of Vmware.
      IBM version too.

      Thanks

        is this the Emulex card? if so, you can grab the drivers from emulex, then run:

        root@testmachine ~# esxcli software vib install --maintenance-mode -d <offline-bundle.zip>

          correct,
          But if I download a Vmware package bundle, it's to have all drivers inside ;)
