Need to format vmware drives
Posted on 2009-04-17
I recently added additional storage to my RAID controller and reinitialized my drives thinking that would wipe any previos data or configuration. I am booting off of an internal USB drive that contains my VMware ESXi and it's related configuration.
However, now when I go to VIC and add storage, it shows the Device and the new capacity (3.6T) but says there is only 1.6T available. It is like there is a 2T ghost LUN that needs to be deleted.
How do I erase all VM configuration on these drives? Essentially, I want to format and start all over? I used the "Restore to Factory Settings" but that didn't work either.
