We've used VMServer for a bunch of years on our older servers and are looking to play with ESXi 4.0 on one of the new servers that came in but running into a couple issues. All of these could be because we dove right in rather then read through the entire manual (yet)
1. Server has 2.27 TB worth of disk space on 6 drives running RAID 5 but when we create a datastore the max amount of space the server allows us to use is 278 GB.
We add storage, Disk/LUN, we see the local DELL disk has 2.27 TB of capacity but only 278 GB worth of available space.Not sure why the software is not seeing the additional storage.
2. When we try to load Windows server 2003 (64-bit) we get a message stating
Attempting to load an X64 OS, however this CPU is not compatible with x64 mode.
The CPU is a Intel® Xeon® Processor E5520 which from what we understand is a 64 bit processor.
Any help would be appreciated.
