How to get VM to see a RD1000 drive
Posted on 2012-03-13
We are using a Dell Poweredge 2950 with a built in RD1000 drive. It's running ESX 4.
How do I get a VM to see that RD1000 as an accessible drive to back up too?
I ran fdisk -l and verified that the ESX host is seeing the RD1000 and I tried adding it as a generic scsi device in the VM Settings. Rebooted the VM, no luck. When I got to Edit Settings on the VM, all options are greyed out.
It just occurred to me, do I have to shut down the server, Edit the settings, edit the SCSI and check the connected and connect at power on options? I rebooted but totally did not think to look at the settings while the server is shut down.
