Direct path IO


I need to know if i can use a PCI-e network-card in the PCI Expansion Blade thru esxi5.1?

The network-card is a from Siemens. This card is supported for direct path IO (i found a document at Siemens).

My question is: is the expansion blade supported for direct path io? i can´t find any blade server in the hw compatibility matrix from vmware?!

My environment:


BL460Gen8 with PCI-Expansion Blade

Siemens Network-Card (supported for ESX-Passthru)

ESXi 5.1


thx for help
