    ML115 G5 has only PCI, PCIe x1, x8, x16. No PCI-X, while it *may* work in the PCI slot it would be considerably slower than on a PCI-X slot.

    To be sure it's going to work you need:

    457692-B21 (Cable) and
    411508-B21 HP E200 card. Available from various resellers.

    It works in ESXi but has no monitoring agent for drive status, although apparently you can alter the HP version to make it work.


    The ML115 is just too basic as a production VM server, but is fine for testing or home use as you can live without RAID status etc.

    Don't forget to check this site: VMware Compatibility Guide - Search the VMware Compatibility Guide

    DMcCoy's right, the ML115 isn't a production-level server, although a couple of my development projects on ours have turned into real-world usage servers. Even then, my VMs are on a SAN, so I'd just need another ML115 ready to go as a backup.
