Hi,

we installed a LSI megaraidcontroller 9286-8e in our VmWare 5.1 server. ESXi recognises the raid controller with de disks.

On that ESXi server, we have a Win2003 server on which we would to connect to the raidcontroller so the diskcabinet attached to the raidcontroller pops up like a driveletter E:\ in our Win2003 server.

How should this be done?

Kind regards,
Alex

do you want to use a virtual disk, or directly attach to the disk?

see my EE Article

HOW TO: Add Local Storage (e.g. a SATA disk) as a Raw Disk Mapping (RDM) or Mapped RAW LUN to a virtual machine hosted on ESXi

In the attachment a screenshot of the settings of our datastore.
There is a limit of 2TB.
So it is not possible to add a new harddisk with a size of >2TB.
Is it still possible to create a Raw Disk Mapping (RDM) with a size of more than 2TB?

this has now changed, with the the release of VMware vSphere 5.x.

RAW limited now 64TB.

See attachment for the error: Failed to create virtual disk: The destination file system does not suppo          e files (12).
Any ideas how to solve this?

this does not work for RAID storage controllers.
