Configure 10GB 533FLR-T Adapter NPAR on DL360p G8

Hi Guys

I tried to configure NPAR on the DL360p Gen8 with FlexFabric 533FLR-T included. However this is not appearing in the CCM within the BIOS boot option.

I'm unsure why this is the case.

Has anyone bumped into this and know how to resolve it? The NIC Partition option is missing.

We are running VMware ESXi5.5.

Thanks

You need to set pci passthrough to the device. As qlogic adapter it is supported with NIC sharing.
Make sure you install HP firmware pack 2014-09 or later as older ones did not install proper network firmwares at random (I really mean it, as original NIC firmware is dangerous even for XP)
