VMWARE - Unable to update disk partition table
Posted on 2010-08-24
I recently added two drives to our VMWare host. The drives are stripped. When I attempt to add the drive set as a data storage group in VMWARE. I get the error message "Unable to update disk partition table"
I researched on line and I found the VMWare KB article that tells me to use fdisk from the console etc. However, the error that I get when I try the fdisk -u <identifier> is "unable to read from <identifier> I know the syntax is correct because I can change the identifier and all is well.
if I look under the dev\disks directory I do see the disk that I need to parition. If I run fdisk -l it does not display.
