Does VMware ESX 3.5 or 3i work with the Marvell PHY 88E1121 network card?
Posted on 2008-06-17
I'm about to order a new server barebones that has dual Marvell PHY 88E1121 NICs. We may wish to run ESX 3.5 or 3i in the future (we are running VMware's free server product at the moment).
Looking at their HCL, VMware don't support this card yet. Although, I've seen seen some entries on the web via google, where people may have successful created an ESX implementation using this card.
Can anyone out there categorically tell me whether this NIC will or will not work with ESX, based on your own experience of trying it.....
Any quick reply appreciated - want to complete in order in the next few hours ideally....
