    HP PROLiant DL380R05 with VMware ESXi 3.5

    jdejongh Lurker





      I want a to install / setup a HP server (DL350R05) with VMware ESXi. It seems the sollution for my problem.I want to setup the following configuration:



      - HP PROLIANT DL380R05 - XEON 5420 2.5GHz 2048MB SA-P400-256MB- BBWC 8xSFF DVD/CDRW (1 processor)

      - 2x HP 72.8-GB 15K Hot Plug SFF SAS disk

      - 2x HP 146-GB 10k Hot Plug SFF SAS disk



      Now i want to host 2 VMware images. Is it possible to control / setup the disk array with VMware ESXi.(by this i mean create array's and things)

      So i can configure / setup / dedicate a VMware image to a disk set?



      For instance:


      2x 72.8 GB (RAID1 mirror) and the 2x 146 GB (RAID1 mirror) so i can place / install 2 images dedicated to the RAID set(s).

      Anyone has expirience with this?
