Change LSI SAS to Paravirtual iSCSI Controller

I have a VM that has various RDM disks presented to its LSI SAS SCSI Controller. I need to change the controller to Paravirtual.

I had a read of this but it appears to be geared toward boot disks

Anyone have some advice?

Do you really need to change to Paravirtual ? LSI to Paravirtual is the easier of the two....

make sure you never Remove VMware Tools when using Paravirtual drivers, because it has a habit of removing the driver from system32, resulting in a BSOD!

Hi Andrew,

Sorry for the late follow, up. It turned out to be a moot point in the end, the client had a Microsoft 'Store Simple' Device, that had 6x5TB volumes presented to the ESX hosts, which then presented them to the guest as RDMs. I ended up removing the volumes from the hosts, and connecting the VM directly to the storage via iSCSI/MPIO, since then the problem they were getting (VM freezing with Event ID 129 and needing to be rebooted) has ceased.
