Today I installed an ESXi host with an Fusion I/O Accelerator card and I would like to share my experience with you.
This server will be used by VMware Horizon to run VM’s on it.

Documentation, firmware and drivers
Installation of ESXi
The first step when installing ESXi on a new HP server is to run the HP Proliant Support Pack to update the server with new firmware versions (if applicable).
After updating the server I installed and configured ESXi. Now it was time to add a datastore, but when I tried to add a datastore there was nothing to add. I hoped to found the I/O card and create a datastore on it.
Because I was unable to add a datastore on the I/O card I started looking for information and found documentation, firmware and drivers. The “USER GUIDE FOR VMWARE ESXI” was very helpful and explained what to do. This guide explained how to install drivers manually, but because I expect to install much more of these servers I hoped to automate the installation of the drivers.
I was hoping to add the drivers to VUM, create a baseline and apply the drivers to this (and in the future to others) host. I added the drivers below to the Patch Repository in VUM by using the Import Patches feature:
I used the above drivers because I use ESXi 5.5 U2. If you are using ESXi 5.x (not 5.5) the use these drivers:
Now it is time to create a baseline. I called mine: HP I/O Driver. The baseline type is Host Extension and I added both drivers to this baseline.
This baseline can now be attached to hosts containing I/O cards and you can start remediating the host(s) to install these drivers.
Now that the drivers are installed I was hoping (again) to add a datastore. Still no luck. So I went back to the user guide and noticed the following: With the command fio-status you can check the status of the I/O card. I did this and noticed: Attach status is “Status unknown: Driver is in MINIMAL MODE:”. The user guide explained that this could have something to do with the firmware version. So next step: Update firmware.
Sandisk Fusion Io Drivers
On datastore1 (ESXi is installed on a local SSD disk) I created a folder called Bundles and put the firmware file in that folder (ioaccelerator_4.1.2-20141212.fff).
Now I can update the firmware by running the command below from the console:
fio-update-iodrive -d /dev/fct0 /vmfs/volumes/datastore1/Bundles/ioaccelerator_4.1.2-20141212.fff
After 5 or 10 minutes the firmware was installed and I rebooted the server.
After the reboot I was finally able to configure a datastore on the I/O card.
Bandwidth and PCI slot
When running the fio-status command again I now see the I/O card to be online and Attached. I do get a warning message however about the PCI slot. I think this can be solved by moving the I/O card to a different (faster) PCI slot. Maybe I’ll update this post once this is done.
The user guide also talks about: Power settings, how to format the I/O card correctly, how to address possible memory issues, Disable CPU Frequency Scaling and Limiting ACPI C-States. So I recommend you to read this guide carefully and consult you manufacturer for these kind of settings. The user guide is from SanDisk (I think HP rebranded it) and not from HP so before adjusting any setting contact you manufacturer. Maybe I’ll update this post once the settings become clear.

HP investigated this issue and gave the following recommendations:
- Install the IO accelerator in the PCI Slot 5.
- Adjust power settings in BIOS
- HP Power Profile – Max Performance
- HP Power Regulator – HP Static High Performance Mode
- Advanced Power Management Options – Minimum Processor idle state – No “C” states
After changing the BIOS and moving the card to a different PCI slot the warning disappeared.
As a prequel to my upcoming FusionIO performance benchmarking articles I thought I would quickly demonstrate how easy it is to install the FusionIO drivers for VMware ESXi.
First you need to download the drivers from https://support.fusionio.com/downloads , you will need to register to access the support website.
Once you login you need to click the Downloads button and you will see the “Identify Product” section appear similar to the below. Select “IODrive2” , The suitable VMware ESXi version, and for option 3, the latest version.
Then you should see the below available downloads.
The file you need is the “Fusion-IO_libvsl-offline-bundle-%version%” file which is under “Utilities”.
Download the file and extract the zip file, and you should see similar to the below.
Now we need to either copy the vib file to a datastore OR use something like WinSCP to copy the file to the host. Adobe creative cloud 2017 master collection for mac.
The easiest way in my opinion is to copy the file to a datastore via vSphere client.
To do this, goto the “configuration” tab for your ESXi host/s , select “storage” under the “Hardware” section, then select your datastore.
Now right click the datastore and select “Browse Datastore”

Once in your datastore, click this icon and you will see the below appear.
Select the VIB file and press “Open”
The file should now upload, and you will see a progress window like the below.
Once the file is in your datastore, make note of the path assuming you didn’t use the root of the datastore.
Now click “Security Profile” under the “Software” section (see below).
Now click “Properties” for the “Firewall” and you will see the below appear.
Ensure “SSH Server” is ticked like the above and press Ok.
Your now ready to SSH to your ESXi host using a program such as PuTTY.

Open PuTTY, enter the IP or hostname for your ESXi host, select SSH (Port 22) and press Connect.
You will be prompted for credentials, I am using “root” in this example.
After entering your credentials, you should see the below screen.
Now we use “esxcli” to install the VIB by using the following command
“esxcli software vib install -v /vmfs/volumes/*DATASTORENAME*/Fusionio_bootbank_block-iomemory-vsl_126.96.36.199-1OEM.500.0.0.472560.vib”
Once Installed, you should see something similar to the below.
Now to verify the driver has installed, we can use the “esxcli software vib list” command which should give us a result similar to the below.
Now if the driver appears like the above, reboot your host.
Once you have rebooted, SSH back to your host, and we now need to format the FusionIO card.
To do this use the below command.
Now you should be able to open the vSphere client, select your host and goto the configuration tab, Select “Storage Adapters” and you should see the FusionIO card show up like the below.

Now you can return to the “Storage” menu and use “add Storage” too format the card with VMFS.

Now your ready to use your FusionIO card.
