VMWare configuration

Closed

Looking for experienced SCO Unix / VMWare guy who is able to configure legacy hardware to work with vmware as described below.

There is fully virtualized (in vmware ESXi) SCO Release 3.2V5.0.6 (open server) which is running without any problems. However we do require that mentioned host, due to legacy reasons, need access to very old PCI card. It is specialized communication card which is not easy to replace with something else.

During the booting SCO unix mentioned card called CP1613 is shown on HW configuration screen. However booting of the OS is delayed for a while and following message is shown:

dr_do_wait snid-769 what INIT_DR_ACK

The command hw -r pci is showing following:

Index 41

DeviceNum: 0

Function: 0

Bus: 3

VendorId: Siemens Nixdorf

DeviceId: 0x3143

RevId: 0x66

Command: 0x0003 Memory enabled, I/O enabled

Status: 0x0400

ClassCode: 0x020000 Ethernet controller

CacheLineSize: 8 32 bit words

LatencyTimer: 0x40

HeaderType 0x00 Single-function, Standard encoding

BaseAddr[0]: I/O 0x4000

InterruptLine: IRQ 11

InteruptPin: INTA

The question is where is a problem - is VMWARE PassThru does not work properly or does SCO Unix have a problem to communicate with the card?
