We have installed a Brocade 825 HBA into a Dell PowerEdge 2900 and installed ESXi 5.0, the card was not picked up on installation.
We have used the import tool from the Update Manager within VC and created a seperate baseline and have remediated the server successfully, but the card has still not been picked up.
We have used drivers
brocade-esx-5.0.0-bfaConfig-220.127.116.11-offline_bundle-463306 (these would not install into the update manager)
BCD-bfa-18.104.22.168-00000-offline_bundle-465342 (these did install into the update manager but the card failed to initialise)
Can anyone offer any assistance?
Same issue here. Apparently Update Manager does NOT install these Drivers. I tried it and no go. You have to use the Tar.gz download and CLI into the host to unzip and then run the .sh file.
I don't know why this is but I want to know.
