Post Pre-install troubleshooting
Hi all,
I am going to convert my home server from Fedora 14 + VirtualBox to ESXi (provided my one addon SATA/IDE controller is detected like it should be). However, I want to know if I will have an issue with running a PCI RTL8169 and a PCIe RTL8111/8168B in the same system. The PCIe RTL8111/8168B card will be for ESXi management & my Fedora 14 home server VM. The PCI RTL8169 will be for a Server 2008 R2 VM for WSUS. I have read some on the forums that there can be issues with the combo of cards I will be using so I'd just like to avoid that if possible.

Also, I forgot until now that in the future I would like to add an eSATA enclosure with a port multiplier, are these supported in ESXi?

Sorry for the late reply (I'm just returing from vacation).

Did you end up trying the install? ESXi 5.0 will have some realtek drivers included (r8168 and r 8169).

I did install it to a thumb drive and added the realtek drivers. Only found the IDE controller on my motherboard though. Decided not to mess with it for a little while. Not sure I want to go modifying files to get my motherboard sata controller working, my addon via ide/sata controller working & try to get my sil3132 sata controller working.
