This is ongoing problem for the last three days.  I cannot see the local hard drive in the Storage section on vSphere 4.1.  I am using ESXi 4.1.  I can see storage adapters; however, no storage.  I cannot add storage.

Unable to resolve the issue.  I bought another NIC for my server and esxi is running perfect and detects the storage.  Thanks everyone.

were you able to see it before?  Did you install the OS on the same volume or different volume? What changes if any occured on the system?

I have reinstalled esxi in the same volume.  I am looking to use the same volume as datastorage.  No other change had occured because i cannot do anything else.

how much free space is left on the drive(s)?  if it's over 2tb, then you'll need to make a smaller volume within the RAID controller setup.

If you log into the console and run 'esxcfg-volume -l', does it return a blank list or do you see a volume listed?
