Hi Experts,

I have converted one VM and now I need to create a seconf iSCSI controller with another bus sharing.
I did it several times in the past but now it is not working anymore.
I changed the vmware version from 5.5 to 6.0

Can you help me out ?

To add a second SCSI controller, when adding a new hard disk, just select a SCSI ID like 1:x (assuming you already have a SCSI controller with ID 0:x) and so back to SCSI controller settings and change the Bus Sharing.

I solved it.
With VMWARE 6.0 maybe some changes came up.

When I add a second SCSI controller my VM and a new disk I was able to change the bus sharing to physical.
The creation from disk and controller was successful, this was with VMWARE 5.5.

But yesterday, it wasn´t possible like this.
It was just working, when I also select THICK PROVISION EAGER ZEROED !!
