How does ESXi 4.1 access the builtin SAN on an HP Proliant ML 330 G6
Posted on 2010-09-16
I am building a test environment on brand new Proliant ML 330 G6 with 4 hard drives configured on a raid 10.
The current situation is as follows:
I have successfully created the raid 10 using the array controller (also checked it using the HP Tools Media).
Successfully installed ESXi on a USB stick as I was unable to install it on the SAN. All ESXi was able to see was the 4 hard drives despite them being configured as described above.
Also, whilst running the console on my workstation, I was able to connect to machine and yet again saw the 4 hard drives as 4 independent datastores rather than a single logical drive.
If this question has been answered previously please accept my appologies and if possible redirect me to the solution, otherwise if anyone can help it would be great.
Thanks in advance
