I just installed ESXi 4.1 on my laptop (i tried on my server, but network card is not compatible) so in the meantime (until tomorrow) i am testing the software in my laptop. ESXi installs fine and is accessible. When configuring the vSphere 4.1 client on remote workstation, the data storage does not appear. My question is: can i use the local hard drive (where ESXi is installed) as data storage as well? The hard drive nor external hard drives that i plug in to the laptop appear on the list of data storage. I have attempted to re-scan and refresh many times. I run the command via SSH "fdisk -l" and get nothing. Please advice.
