I'm searching for a compatibility list of Fiber Channel card on Mac Pro 5,1 for a VMWare ESXi 5,1 operating System. Does the Mac Pro accept any of hardware product if they are VMWare supported ?


VMWare support ESXi 5.1 + on the Mac Pro 5,1 but don't support the Apple Fiber card.


My goal is to have 2 mac pro with ESXi installed on, and to have a cluster with High Availability for the Mac OS X 10.8 server's virtual machine.


I want to use an alternate storage solution than the Promise because it is not supported by VMWare. It's mean that I will probably use a Fujitsu Eternus bay.


Thanks a lot for this pretty question....



Mac Pro, Other OS, VMWare ESXi 5.1u1
