We recently purchased a Cisco UCS C220 M4S server to use as a VMware ESXi v5.5 host. We configured the RAID as follows:
Group 0: 2 drives RAID 1
Group 1: 4 drives RAID 5
Controller: Cisco 12G SAS Modular Raid
We installed VMware on Group 0, (lets call it datastore1). Problem now is when trying to create a second datastore (datastore2), we receive the following error:
An error occurred during host configuration, create vmfs datastore: Operation failed, diagnostics report. Unable to create filesystem, please see VMKernel log for more details. No such file or directory. Call "HostDatastoreSystem.CreateVmfsDatastore" for object "ha-datastoresystem" on ESXi "10.1.2.238" failed.
I looked through the vmkernel log, but I'm not sure what I'm looking for.
I can provide more details upon request.
