PCI card as "Not Loaded"

Greetings,

 

So we have 3 UCS that have a FC HBA card installed, but when you check the PCI Adapters tab in the CIMC, this slot appears as "Not Loaded" in the Option ROM Status

Weirdly enough, when you check the BIOS Parameter configuration you see that the "PCIe Slot:1 Option ROM" appears as Disabled, even though the "All PCIe Slots OptionROM" is Enabled

If I enable the PCI Slot 1, it would work?

It is weird because I can see the UCS servers from the Fibre Switch but I can't link the ESXi to the FC storage

 

Thanks

@Racso,

Since you have explicitly "disable" the PCIe slot, you have to set it enabled. Till the time option ROM is not enabled, it will not look for LUNs, but you will be seeing WWNs on SAN switch. 

 

Please rate if you find it helpful. 

 

Regards,

MJ
