We are using Intel Gigabit ET Quad Port Server Adapter in HP ProLiant DL380 G6 servers. On these servers we are running VMware ESX 4.0 U1 and want to configure to use the eight VMDqs of the ET Quad Port Server adapter cards.
I didnt find any article from VMware related to ESX 4.0 and configuring the VMDqs. There is only an article for ESX 3.5 that doesnt work on ESX 4.0.
We also opened a SR at Vmware but the answer was that the functionality to use VMDqs on ESX 4.0 isnt available in the Intel driver for VMware and Intel is responsible for these drivers.
But regarding to this thread (http://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/showthread.php?t=66153) Mr. Ott states thatusing VMDqs is supported on ESX 4.0.
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance
