VMWare ESX Server 3i on Dell PowerEdge 2950 connected to PowerVault MD3000i double controller disk array
Posted on 2009-07-15
I wonder if someone can help me a bit to correctly set up two physical Dell PowerEdge 2950 boxes running VMWare ESX Server 3i against a Dell PowerVault MD3000i double controller storage box.
Eveything is physically connected and I'm using VMWare Infrastructure Client logged in to one of the PE boxes and the Dell Modular Disk Storage Manager is logged in to the MD3000i box.
I cannot figure out how to have the MD3000i disk resources show up in VMWare's resource list, and I also need some advice in best practices as of which RAID type to select in my scenario.
