How do I configure Dell R900 with ESX 5.5 to get the volume from MD1000 which is connection as DAS? It used to be an old ESX server 4 with DAS in MD1000 but now I upgraded to Esx 5.5 after I migrated all VM to new server.
I want to upgrade datastore wiith new HDD and use it for file backup with RAID 5 but I could find any document to configure MD1000 with poweredge R900.
When I boot up and go to array configuration of R900 it only shows local RAID does not show MD1000 connection to DAS. Which of course was accessible before I upgraded OS.
I got 5 new HDD with 2 TB which I am planning to replace with existing drive of 1 TB on MD1000 and may be add more in future once it starts working
