    Unable to present additional new 1 TB as VMFS datastore to the ESXi server ?

      Hi All,

       

      Does anyone know what steps should I do to present my 1 TB Hard Disk using my eSATA connector casing to the HP DL 360 G7 server ?

       

      I have installed the PCI Express eSATA card successfully on the server as can be seen from the below vSphere console screenshot:

      but for some reason unknown, I cannot see the 1 TB hard drive after multiple Rescan, it just the same blank or nothing to present to ESXi.

       

      here's what the HP server BIOS can see:

      when I attach the eSATA connection to my Toshiba laptop, it went fine, I can transfer the data and format the drive in the eSATA casing.
