Secondary LUNID (Enables VVols) for Inbox drivers

Jump to solution

I noticed when searching the VCG only the Async drivers for Cisco VICs specifically mention the feature Secondary LUNID.  Does this mean the inbox drivers do not support vVols and/or was not tested for the Secondary LUNID feature?  I am looking at the Cisco 1457, 1340/1380, and 1440/1480 with 7.0 or 7.0U1.

Hi bct0109

Only partner async drivers are listed per VMware HCL. This means that at this stage, only drivers provided by the vendor are available for these ESXi versions. Newer update or patch of ESXi might add a inbox driver once it's available.

Hope that helps

Makes sense.  Thank you!  I had been using native nfnic drivers and it seemed like vVols were working fine.
