supported nics

Jump to solution

Hi there,

I have read this doc

http://www.vmware.com/pdf/vi3_systems_guide.pdf

and I can't find a list of compatible nics for my esx servers. I need to buy 4 nics for redundancy for my hp dl385's. Can anyone recommend a good nic ?

thank,

Paul

So far the e1000 seams to be the way to go.

Broadcoms are good Adapters, some other adapters we use on DL585s are HP NC380T PCI-E Dual Port Multifunction Gigabit Server Adapter
