I have a disk array (RAID1) with an Adaptec RAID 2405 card. The OS installed on the hard disk (arra) is ESXi. On the adaptec site, ESXi is listed as supported OS. If i install a Windows server 2008 VM on this ESXi OS, and then install the Adaptec Manager Software within this VM, it comes up with no available cards. I presume this is because there is the VMware layer in between the hardware and the Windows Operating System, so the management software cannot directly see the hardware.

Is there a way where i can monitor the health of the array in this situation.
