Thanks. Could you please clarify your reply, specially providing links to documents (or more detailed reference) to what I need to install in the ESxi 6 VM running WS2008 R2 (and with the H700 passedthrough/VMDirectPath I/O passed directly to the VM). I've investigated further with more details below.
What package for OMSA 8.5 for ESXi should I install in the T610 host? ("There is a package of OMSA that is built for ESXi, you'll need to install that onto the host itself...The instance on the VM is going to act as a client, while the instance on the host will act as the server. .")
Reiterating, I have the H700 passedthrough/VMDirectPath I/O directly to the ESxi 6 VM running WS2008R2. The T610 host will not see the H700.
Investigating further, I wasn't able to login to the OSMA8.5 install because only the web server part was installed in the VM. None of the other OMSA components such as *Server Instrumentation* or *Storage Management* installed. There was no custom install option selected because the installation systemcheck doesn't detect that the VM is a Dell server.
