    Three PCIe devices attached to the same VM

    Chunguang Novice

      Hi,

         I'm a newbie in VMware ESXi. I installed ESXi 4.1 on a DELL Precision T5500 and Windows 7 64bit as VM OS. I had three PCIe devices of the same type (under the sound,video and game controller category) plugged into the host machine and I could attach all the three of them to the one VM and all the three devices are accessible by that VM.

         However, based on the post at http://communities.vmware.com/docs/DOC-11089, "Each virtual machine can be connected to up to two PCI devices." Is this a new improvement of ESXi4.1 to support more than 2 PCI devices or just my good luck?
