Hi experts,

I would need some help on installing one old FC controller on my ESXi 5.0 host. The controller is NOT exactly supported by hardware vendor (Fujitsu Primergy server), but guy who gave it to me, said it has been tested on the same hardware and it works.

Well, here I'd need some help - how to approach to install this controller?

It is:
Qlogic 64-bit 133-MHz PCI-X to 2Gb dual-channel Fibre Channel controller
On chip it says: ISP 2312
On sticker: P59270E RAT6 8X0

This is all info I have about it.

If anybody could give me some instructions on how to install (or at least try to install) this adapter on my Fujitsu Primergy (RX300) server, I would be very happy.
