    Hypervisor 6.5 does not see local drives

    ricksdyna Lurker

      I have a new Dell PowerEdge R640 with a Dell PERC H740P integrated RAID controller. This is set up in a RAID 5 configuration. I have installed ESXi 6.5. This installation does not see the SATA hard drives.


      If I look at Storage Adapters, I see vmhba0, vmhba1 and vmhba32.


      vmhba0 an dvmhba1 are both listed as Lewisburg SSATA Controller (AHCI model) Status is unknown. The driver is vmw_ahci


      The vmhba32 is a USB Storage Controller and this is the boot device for the Hypervisor server.


      Any ideas why the hard drives do not appear under either vmhba0 or vmhba1?


      Any help would be appreciated.
