Hi,
I have install an ESXi 5.0 on a HP ML370 G5 Server and i am thinking of giving a PCI Voip Card to an virtual asterisk Voip PBX.

I tried with a OpenVox PCI (X100P SE) card but in the tab with the list of PCI cards in advanced Setting of Hardware,  a  message  that the "host does not support passthrough configuration" appear! (vSphere Client)
Is anything that i can do to recognise the PCI card or another compatible PCI card with 1 PSTN Gateway
or is there any kind of solution to achive my purpose!

PS: i checked that virtualization Technology is anabled in BIOS Setting!

thank you...

It's nothing to do with the PCI card, it's your HOST server.

I'm afraid your SERVER DOES NOT support VM Direct Path I/O or PCI Passthrough.

Have you tried using a dedicated vSwitch, virtual machine portgroup, and dedicated physical virtual network interface connected to the vSwitch to supported this VM.

It's often recommended by vendors to use a physical network interface, but the VMXNET3 virtual interface, tied to a private vSwitch, and dedicated physical network interface, can generate good bandwidth.
