Intel D510MO with Intel Pro/1000 MT
Motherboard: Intel D510MO
Nic: Intel Pro/1000 MT (desktop adapter)
Cpu: Intel Atom D510 (@1,66Ghz)
ESXi version: ESXi 4.0 Update 1 (ESXi 4.0.0 build 208167)
Disk: WD Caviar Green 1.5TB, 32MB, SATA2http://www.intel.com/products/desktop/m ... erview.htm
NOTE: I could get the onboard NIC (RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller rev 03) to remain working under heavy load. Simply doing an rsync of a few GB would crahs the entire network interface for a few hours (strangely it does come back after a while).
So I simply installed the mentioned Intel e1000 card into the only available PCI slot.
