Hi guys. Building a server used for SOHO back office and high end test/devel
I want the board to support ESXi 6.5 fully NICS, I/O passthruough. Furthermore it should:
1) have IPMI/iKVM
2) Support at least 64 GB DDR4, preferable 128 GB
3) low power usage
Regarding your question, "on a compatible server/workstation board for ESXi 6.5, also to be able to handle - 1) have IPMI7iKVM - 2) Support at least 64 GB DDR4, preferable 128 GB - 3) low power usage ".
Normally this question will be best handle calling or sales department or local Authorized Resellers. I am going to do my best to get you the closest best answers.
For Sales department, please follow this link:
For Authorized Resellers:
For IPMI7iKVM, the best solution will be to contact the manufacture for compatibility list of the Hardware manufacturer, this because for what I was able to read is only compatible with Windows, Linux and Java Runtime Environment.
For a more detailed on compatibility for ESXi 6.5 please take a look at this document from ESXi - https://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/pdf/vi_systems_guide.pdf https://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/pdf/vi_systems_guide.pdf
Also, from Intel - https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005893/network-and-i-o/ethernet-products.html https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005893/network-and-i-o/ethernet-products.html
Support for at least 64 GB RAM or higher.
Best compatible board are the S2600WT** and S2600ST*
I hope this information helps you.
If there is anything else we can help please feel free to ask.
