Hi , I am using Vcenter/Vsphere/ESX to do some of my task. I am using Powercli to do my work. I am facing some issue while trying to add a PCI device to a VM.
My problem is Get-PassthroughDevice” is not listing all the “passthrough device”. There is a catch where it is failing as mentioned below:
In my ESX I have 4 HBA card of same vendor (qlogic) but this command is listing always the 1st one from that list.
The output for below screenshot from “Get-PassthroughDevice -vmhost <IP>” command should list all 4 qlogic HBA but list only the 1st one. I tried the command in 5 different ESX.
I am attaching the output of Get-PassthroughDevice command.
Please let me know if this issue is fixed in any Version of powercli . I am using VMware-PowerCLI-5.5.0-1295336 version.
You can find below line in attached file.
Uid : /VIServerfirstname.lastname@example.org@126.96.36.199:443/PassthroughDevice=HostSystem-host-70--ISP2532-based 8Gb Fibre Channel to PCI Express HBA-0/
If there is no solution using Powercli , is there any alternate way to Add PCI device to VM ??
I want to add a specific passthrough HBA to a specific VM. and delete once my work is done.
Any cli command is fine. No GUI method.
