Getting a cheap FC card into ESXi server

I am looking to see if I can add a cheap Fiber Channel (FC) to my ESX server.

Stumbled across this when looking for a StorageWorks on Ebay - FCA2404

  • Found it on the VMware ESX hcl. looks like it works for ESX3i, but not 4i
  • Found a HP web site for documentation: FCA2404 documentation
  • Found the drivers for it: FCA2404 Drivers
  • Works with windows 2000, 2003, and 2008 so believe the HP is continuing support for it
  • Only a 2GB FC card, but do you need more for a home test sever
