Trying to resolve alert in VCSA 6.7

I'm running a vcenter VCSA (6.7) and I've added four new hosts.  These are new servers just received from Dell.  


Once added, I see all fours hosts have yellow bangs on them, so I did some digging.


The first pic is the pic of the yellow alerts and the second is the ONLY place in the host where I see a corresponding alert.  I find the alert when logged into the host, under monitor > Storage Sensors.


Of course, I googled and found the post about starting the SFCBD but when I start it, it doesn't start, and then I read the post about how after 6.7, it's not recommended to run it anway.


I can't clear the alert and was hoping someone could assist me in resolving it.


PS:  There are no datastores connected yet and the OS is running off internal USB drive plugged into the MB.


Update:  I got it started, so now the alert is shown in pic three below.


Thanks

Did ESXi come bundled with the server?
If not, did you use the Dell OEM install media?  It will include necessary hardware drivers for their systems.

No.  I downloaded ESXi and installed it on an internal thumb drive.

Andrew, it's always so nice to hear you rip my plans apart and tell me to start over. 😀 I've come to the same conclusion. thank you sir! and I still owe you dinner for some question you answered a million years ago.

No problems for the advice, "a stitch in time says nine".

You'll only get bitten later, when you've gone into production, and it will be more work to fix the issues.
