I have an HP ML350 G5 that I have been running an ESX 3.5 lab on for quite some time. Previously I had 3 X 500GB SATA drives configured for VMs. I decided I wanted to rebuild the server and increase my drive space. Here is the current DAS RAID configurations on the server:
2 X 500GB SATA disks configured for RAID 1
4 X 1TB SATA disks configured for RAID 5
The server acknowledges that there are two logical drives, one for each array. However, during ESX install the RAID 5 array is nowhere to be found. Are the drives too large for some reason? Am I missing something in the setup?
Thank you in advance.
