Am configuring a new Supermicro server with vSphere 6.0.0, 7504637 on it.  Added a HGST HE8 HUH728080ALE604 drive and when I tried to add it as a datastore, I got back:

Call "HostDatastoreSystem.QueryVmfsDatastoreCreateOptions" for object "datastoreSystem-29078" on vCenter Server " <vcenter server url>" failed.

Is this drive not supported natively in vSphere?  If not are there any known workarounds?
