    FirePro W7100 ESXi 6.5 driver

    berkinkartal

      Dear All/Experts,

       

      I have a HPE Proliant ML350 gen9 server and in manufacturer's datasheet it's mentioned that FirePro W7100 is supported. So I purchased the card based on some info I found online as well.

      However, -this is my mistake- I cannot find the drivers vmware ESXi 6.5 for this card. So far I have seen S7100, but not W.

      My system recognizes the card, however the driver I have loaded is not for this card and Although I switch the card to passthrough mode, I cannot see the additional PCI devices after reboot.

       

      Is there any option/way to get vmware drivers for this card?
