This is using a DELL Poweredge R630 physical server, setup as VMware ESXi 6.0 U2 host. A DELL Compellent SCv2020 2U storage also purchased. This storage came with 2 controllers, with 4-port SAS interfaces. A 12 Gbps SAS HBA card (dual-port) is connected to the host. From the host HBA card, I connected 2 SAS cables to the "port 1" of both top and bottom SAS interfaces of the SCv2020.
After that, VMware ESXi 6.0 U2 was setup successfully on server's SDCards. I used DELL Storage Enterprise manager client to initialise and setup the SCv2020 storage. Server was defined, since only a server, no server cluster is created. A test volume of 500 Gb is created and "mapped" to the host. Everything seems fine.
However, in vSphere client connected to the host, in Configuration > Storage adapter, no doubt the 12 Gbps SAS HBA card is detected, no storage and volume were "allocated" after the scan. I don't think I did the setup wrong. Could it be the SAS HBA driver has to be explicitly download and install again?
Thanks in advance.
