Setup an HP 534FLR-SFP+ 10Gb 2 port Ethernet adapter into multiple vmnics within Vsphere 5.

Does anyone knows how to setup an HP 534FLR-SFP+ 10Gb 2 port Ethernet adapter into multiple vmnics within Vsphere 5.5? We now only have 2 10Gb vmnics available in ESXi 5.5. We need to separate the 2 ports into at least 4 vmnics.

Carving up one physical interface into multiple separate devices is a feature of the CNA/NIC and not something you configure on the ESXi-side. On an HP bladesystem with Flex-10/Flex-Fabric CNAs you would do that in the Virtual Connect management interface.

Not sure how it works for standalone servers, but you can probably split it into multiple devices in the CNA BIOS IF the device supports it.
