ESXi 6.0 and Emulex LPe11000 (possibly other Emulex cards that aren’t working oob)

This post was originally published on this site

I’m posting this so others might not have to spend hours on the line with support figuring this out.

My environment is older and has the Emulex LPe11000 hba cards.  This card isn’t discovered oob.

Obviously a problem right.  After spending hours on the phone with VMWare support they pointed me to Emulex.

The issue really is that some of VMWare’s support personnel don’t know where they keep all the VIB files for their OS.

I was able to find the attached VIB here.  Import this and apply it and your Emulex card will start working and you can take your hosts up to ESXi 6.
