    Does anyone have experience using a video card in this server. I have this S7-2 with software loaded. I need a video card to port a display to a PC. I'm having trouble finding a video card that is a PCIe x8 low profile card that will fit in this server. I see very few options. Its needs to be compatible with solaris 11.

    Any suggestions of cards?

    Exporting $DISPLAY is not an option? You could use XDMCP to login remotly to your Solaris Desktop or tunnel the X application through a SSH tunnel to your local X Server on your Windows box... no video card needed...

    In case of an "enterprise solution" you could use https://www.oracle.com/virtualization/secure-global-desktop/index.html
