They should work great in ESXi 6.0. I have a number of the dual-port version of these ConnectX-2 EN cards in ESXi machines and they work wonderfully! They're supported with the built-in drivers, too! (Well, not "supported" by Mellanox anymore, but you don't need to hack in drivers or anything -- they work with what's built in).Does anyone know if this works with ESXi 6.0?
Some board configurations there really is no other choice, realjunk is the ultimate shovelware peddler of chipsets and a lot of OEMs just can't resist(or take the money you'd spend on an add-in NIC and buy a slightly better motherboard to begin with)

Hi Homelab74656,The esiso guy is not taking less than $34 for two. Has anyone else been able to get them for less?

Thanks for the help. I just made another counter offer for $28 and asked if the deal was for everyone, or just some users. I guess we will see!Hi Homelab74656,
I actually made a single offer of $30 for pair, to which Esisoinc counter with even cheaper $28 for the pair. Obviously, I accepted his first counter offer ...Maybe Esisoinc is running low on stock now? ...Maybe Esisoinc gave me deal for buying from him before (Esisoinc has been great seller with me). ...Sorry, don't know what happened with your bid, but you might mention my $28 deal and not push lower.
please post the resultThanks for the help. I just made another counter offer for $28 and asked if the deal was for everyone, or just some users. I guess we will see!
