ESXi 6.0 upgrade

Well, the time has come...


Both ESX hosts are getting their boost to ESX 6 as well as vCenter 6. I again had to do the ESX customizer path with the net55 vibs for the RealTek network adapter support. But once in place I was able to install ESX 6 on host #2 and verify functionality.

I also received my eVGA nVidia GT640 in the mail today and went ahead and purchased the widely hacked and documented ASUS GT640. The goal is to possibly use the eVGA card as it has 4GB of RAM, else if I am unable to determine the device ID resistors I will fall back to the 1GB ASUS thats widely documented. Most likely donating the eVGA to my Father.

With the upgrade to ESX 6, I hope to breathe new light into pure DirectPath I/O for the 2 Radeon cards I've been toying with as well. If all goes as planned, I'll be using a GT640 as a Grid card, else possibly one of the Radeon cards  direct to a VM.
