Thank you for posting this, it really helped me out!
I had been looking for the right VIB for a couple of hours and finally found this post. Your link was right on, and now my hosts can see the storage again.
Thank you for posting, you solved my problem!!!
Solved it for me too.
Good day, jurschel!
This VIB helped to find lp1150e again after upgrade ESXi from 5.5u2 to 6.0.0u1 - so i want thank you, your help is very appreciated.
With best regards,
Thanks very much for your research and solution to this issue. I have an HP DL380 G6 with Emulex LP1000e HBA's that I have not been able to get to work with ESX 6.0U2. Your vib link did the trick. Thank you.
Two and a half years later and you're still helping people
Have been spending the last 3 hours trying to get an older LPe1150 running, and this VIB saved the day.
Thank you so much!
My HBA card is HP A8002A(lpe 1150)，it's good for ESXi 6.0 ，but on ESXI 6.5 ，it says "[DependencyError]"
[root@localhost:~] esxcli software vib install -v /tmp/scsi-lpfc820-10.2.459.0-1OEM.500.0.0.472560.x86_64.vib
VIB Emulex_bootbank_scsi-lpfc820_10.2.459.0-1OEM.500.0.0.472560 requires vmkapi_2_0_0_0, but the requirement cannot be satisfied within the ImageProfile.
VIB Emulex_bootbank_scsi-lpfc820_10.2.459.0-1OEM.500.0.0.472560 requires com.vmware.driverAPI-22.214.171.124, but the requirement cannot be satisfied within the ImageProfile.
Please refer to the log file for more details.
I know that the "lpe 1150" card is not supported on ESXI 6.5.
So , what can i do??
Is any option to have ESXi 6.5 Drivers for that Emulex Card?
I can't see anywhere this driver for ESXi 6.5 ...
"Emulex LPe11000 4Gb Fibre channel ""
Thank in advanced!
Thanks for this. Worked a treat earlier. I upgraded from 5.5 to 6.0 U3 and the HBA driver wasn't even loaded. Using your help this was fixed quickly.
Updated Information on VMware 6.5 support for EMULEX LPe11000
Officially VMware have discontinued driver support for this Chipset (Among others)
Read here for a more complete list of other chipsets that are now at discontinued support VMware Knowledge Base
And just to give everyone the Best chance of success, (despite VMware not supporting the chipset)
I can confirm that I got VMware ESXi 6.5 working with these LPFC drivers below
Name: VMware ESXi 5.5 lpfc 10.5.39.0 FC/FCoE Driver for Emulex and OEM Branded Adapters.
Release Date: 2015-04-22
And I've tested nearly every later/newer version and it DOES NOT WORK!
and be warned that VMWare Update manager will attempt to update this driver to like Version 11.? and that will stop the Driver from working
so be careful to NOT install the LPFC driver update when running update manager.
Thank you! I wish I found this sooner. It would have saved me hours of banging my head against my desk.
Thank you for link. It is also work on vmware 6.0.0 Release 6765062
thanks it resolved the issue
