I purchased a new rack server box (with Intel R2208WTTYS chassis, Intel S2600WT Server MB, Intel RS3DC080 RAID controller - equivalent to LSI 9300 MegaRAID SAS 9361-8i) with the intention of installing ESXi V6.1.
The computer came with 128GB of RAM and Qty. 11 SAS HDs. I am going to set up RAID 10 with 1 hot spare, generating effective HD space of about 3TB.
My question is if there is anything that I need to aware of prior to installing ESXi V6.1 on this host?
Since the total HD space available to the datastore would be greater than 2TB, I wonder if it creates an issue ... I don't think so, but just wanted to make sure.
