initializing IOV

G'day,

Does any one know how to disable the IOV check when doing the initial install of ESXi 5.1 or 5.5 ?

Thanks

Justin

Assign SR-IOV is disabled by default on ESXi 5.1 and 5.5. To enable SR-IOV, use the esxcli command or host profiles in 5.1. In vSphere 5.5, it can be done through the vSphere Web Client also.

To enable SR-IOV on a Physical Adapter using the esxcli command in ESXi 5.1 or 5.5 Please check this KB :

Best regards

Yours, Oscar
