manually delete the partitions logged in as root to my ESXi box then try .
Thanks for your reply. I'm not sure I understand the answer here. The only way I can partition them, that I can see, is to use the RAID card BIOS or software?
You need to run the following command for each disk that you’re having issues with (this overwrites the partition table with a standard msdos one which VMware can work with);
NOTE: This will ERASE ALL DATA on the disk in question so be careful to select the right disks!
run thiw command: partedUtil mklabel /dev/disks/<disk id> msdos
To get a list of your disks;
/dev/disks # ls
Thanks Robert - why would I be getting "Access Denied" when running the /dev/disks command? I am logged in as Root.
