Mellanox ConnectX-3 on 6.7?

I keep getting conflicting answers when researching this. Many are complaining of things being unstable such as vMotion etc. Even if they do work now, it won’t be long before they are dropped?

Thanks!

Edit – I am obviously considering the ConnectX-3 due to its lower price.

  1. mellanox connectx-3 is not a supported NIC for vsphere 6.7, we had really bad network stability problem with this card and ultimately swapped them out with the connectx-4s…no issues since

  2. > I am obviously considering the ConnectX-3 due to its lower price.

    Why is that the case if you are worried about stability and having a product that VMware does not support?

  3. Don’t buy something that’s not currently supported. It’s a dead end. If cost is a concern, look at refurb cards from a place like Server Supply. I’ve bought a few HPE FlexFabrics from them and have had no issues whatsoever.
