The adapter configuration process on the ESXi host involves setting up VMkernel binding for an RDMA network adapter, and then enabling a software NVMe over RDMA adapter.

The following video walks you through the steps of configuring NVMe over RDMA adapters.

What to do next

After you enable the software NVMe over RDMA adapter, add NVMe controllers, so that the host can discover the NVMe targets. See Add Controller for the NVMe over RDMA (RoCE v2) or FC-NVMe Adapter.
