    vSphere/ESX 4.0 build-164009 and Infiniband

    StephanS80 Novice

       

      Hello,

       

       

      I'am evaluating vSphere for our firm and I have a problem with one ESX machine and a Infiniband card. The Goal is to connect storage from JBOD's

       

       

      via Infiniband to the ESX Hosts. I installed several ESX nodes for testing, then I shutdown one of these machines and inserted the IB card. The card

       

       

      is visible via lspci. But the are no modules loaded on the ESX host for IB. Any hint's on installing/activating this card? Maybe I have to reinstall the ESX host?

       

       

       

       

       

      Best regards,

       

       

      Stephan
