Nutanix supported 1GB dual Network card? list?


Badge

Hello all..is there a list with model number somewhere of the Nutanix supported NICs?  I am looking for the cheapest 1Gb dual NICs Nutanix supported that I can get from Amazon or ebay or the cheapest 10Gb.. 

 

I was reading that supermicro Nic is supported but I don’t see model number so I was wandering if the Supermicro AOC-SG-12 is supported since that card cost about $35..

 

my understanding is the CE and commercial support the same NICs now. My use case is CE for homelab. thanks

A friend sent me the link bellow for Nutanix Commercial…click on the Dell PowerEdge, find the Nutanic’s 3rd party PCIe “supported” NICs, 1Gb and 10Gb..

 

I have a PCIe I350 1GbE NIC on the way to test and will update my findings.  Having a list of which PCIe NICs are currently supported (without having to build the NIC drivers) by CE and tested working by the community would help new members on their Nutanix Lab adventure running on bare metal.

Intel I350 Dual worked and I was able to install Nutanix on bare metal Dell XPS, pretty much plug and play.. it is a combination of having the correct bios settings and supported NIC.. the Dell XPS is ideal for a lab because the motherboard supports 4x32GB of memory.
