Overview of Cisco UCS Virtual Interface Card Drivers

Cisco UCS Virtual Interface Card (VIC) drivers facilitate communication between supported operating systems and Cisco UCS Virtual Interface Cards (VICs).

Cisco UCS VIC driver ISO bundles include an eNIC driver and an fNIC driver. The eNIC is the driver for the Cisco UCS VIC Ethernet NIC. The fNIC is the driver for the Cisco UCS VIC Fibre Channel over Ethernet HBA.

For Windows, the ISO bundle also includes the iSCSI Crash Dump driver, which supports Windows crash dumps when the server is booted from the Cisco VIC Ethernet interface using the Microsoft iSCSI initiator.
