    CD-Rom not available as host device

    catseye Novice

      Am I missing something obvious? I'm trying to install an OS from an ISO that is sitting on a server running ESX 3i. When I edit the settings for the vm, the Host Device drop down for configuring the CD-ROM says "No Devices available". I know the CD-ROM drive is functioning fine since that is where I installed 3i from. I went into the command line to see what I could see and I don't see anything under /dev that looks like a CD-ROM. This is on a Dell PowerEdge 2900. While technically this server is not on the 3i HCL, it is pretty close to a 2950, which is. From what I have been told, the only difference between the 2900 series and the 2950 series is form factor.
