Post Quad serial port PCIe card
I have tried an Axxon MAP/950 quad serial port PCIe card with VMDirectPath on ESXi 4.1 without success. If I have it attached to a VM the VM powers itself off with the message "The task was canceled by a user".

From the logs:

Code:
Feb 06 17:24:23.137: vmx| PCIPassthru: Device 008:00.0 barIndex 0 type 1 realaddr 0x9800 size 32 flags 1                           
Feb 06 17:24:23.137: vmx| PCIPassthru: Device 008:00.0 barIndex 1 type 2 realaddr 0xfe4fe000 size 4096 flags 0                     
Feb 06 17:24:23.137: vmx| PCIPassthru: Device 008:00.0 barIndex 2 type 1 realaddr 0x9400 size 32 flags 1                           
Feb 06 17:24:23.137: vmx| PCIPassthru: Device 008:00.0 barIndex 3 type 2 realaddr 0xfe4fd000 size 4096 flags 0
Feb 06 17:24:23.137: vmx| PCIPassthru: Registered a PCI device for 008:00.0 vIRQ 0x10, physical MSI = Disabled (vmmInt = Disabled),
Feb 06 17:24:23.138: vmx| PCIPassthru: EnablePCIDevice failed for pciPassthru2             


That's after setting pciPassthru2.virtualDev = "pci". Before setting that I got the error:

Code:
Feb 06 17:15:26.464: vmx| PCIPassthru: PCI device 008:00.0 is marked wrong PCIe                                                     

The PCI ID is 1415:9501

Has anyone found a quad x1 PCIe card that works with VMDirectPath?

When you configure the card for VMdirectpath does it show up as a single device or is each port listed individually?

That's the document I found that led me to try setting pciPassthru2.virtualDev = "pci".

I think the card just isn't compatible with ESXi and VMDirectPath.
