Can you see the ethernet device with lspci?
Have you tried to open a call to VMware support (if card is HCL)?
I believe it is this one, at least this works for me with IBM branded Qlogic 8100 CNA adapter
Btw, I noticed that Qlogic 8100 FCoE CNA driver crashes ESX 4.0u1 CIM provider so I am not able to install PowerPath/VE license. I filed support request on this.
I have the drivers loaded and installed, but I don't see any pdf files for a manual for that driver. Does anyone know where the documentation is specifically for creating virtual adapters to present to the pci bus?
You can download the VMware approved drivers at the following URL under the Driver CDs section:
I just configured some Dell t710s using Qlogic 8152's successfully using the drivers listed below:
network: VMware ESX/ESXi 4.0 Driver CD for QLogic 8100 Series 10GbE CNA 18.104.22.168
SCSI: VMware ESX/ESXi 4.0 Driver CD for QLogic 8100 Series 10GbE FCoE CNA 831.k1.23vmw
