We had an ESX server that didn't have RAID configured so we moved all VMs from it to another host and wiped everything out, then configured RAID10 in the BIOS.

Now ESX is running properly but we noticed that VMWare is not detecting the new RAID configuration. It only sees the local drives on the server.

I've attached a screenshot of the RAID card installed on the server (using the command "# lspci -vvv"

I've searched VMware hardware compatibility list and it looks to be compatible.
