I am running a test to get a soundcard to work within an esxi installation.
This is the hardware im running on:
vmware esxi 5.0 U1
Onboard soundcard - reaktek ALC269 HD Audio (VEN_10EC&DEV_0269)
I have redirected the sound card to the machine and i have installed the driver.
the problem is that i still don't get any devices.
Any help will be very appreciated!
The hardware version is ESXI 5.0 Update 1
I am not sure it is supported, but it is visible to the virtual machine
The realtek software even notices when i connect a headset to the machine.
But for some reason i can see the devices
ohh, I am unsure and not at the hardware right now,
The machine is created via the gui and i selected windows 7 x64
if that doesn't answer your question, I will answer it as soon as I get home from work.
I can now confirm that my machine is hw 8
I have tryed following your link and i now got a soundcard. But still no sound on the output, though i can play sound to them.
Any idea what i can try?
I got it fixed. I ended up not using the onboard soundcard, I just can't get it working the other way.
Instead I added a usb device and a usb soundcard, that worked like a charm.
If anyone got an idea how to get the onboard soundcard working, please tell me!
