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.

Any ideas how to solve this?

this does not work for RAID storage controllers.
