How to get VM to see a RD1000 drive

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.

Thank you
