    Changing LSI Logic SAS to Paravirtual controller on Windows 2012 R2?

    vipclubber Enthusiast

      I am running Windows 2012 R2 VM on HP G8 DL360p Server. (ESXi 6.0U2)

      I need to change SCSI Controller from LSI Logic SAS to Paravirtual.

      Do I need to install drivers? If yes, what drivers and how?

      When I click on ADD SCSI Device under VM settings, the SCSI Device is shown (unavailable) and greyed out.


      1. Is there an article or a video with steps and instructions you can provide?

      2. What are the reasons for performance improvements by switching to Paravirtual?


      Thanks in advance and please advise.
