Our client has an HP Proliant DL380p G8 and one of my VM's (XP) has to output an alarm via the ESXi 5.1 Server external speaker. I'm looking for a sound card to suit the HP Proliant DL380p G8

Any suggestions? also will it work with the XP VM?

I had the same situation with a voicemail server.   I found a cheap USB sound card and it worked fine.  Something like this

I didn't have to shutdown all the VMs to do it.
