If you need system with 500GB mirrored hard drives you should be looking for a hardware solution, not virtual.
What do you need that space for?
I am trying to get the exact same thing done.
Using direct hard drive works but if it's a raid1 md device it does not work.
Since this is something I am working on this week I will definately keep you posted.
I am also working on a way to get shadow copys (backups) of the whole VM (while it's running).
It looks like interesting summer project
I to am trying to get something similar to work.
I have ubuntu 8.04.1 64-bit as my Host and and Dual booting with XP.
I have two 500GB WD drives in RAID1
I'm using my onboard RAID (software), dmraid in Ubuntu.
I can't get VMware to access my XP Partition /dev/mapper/isw_chijicei_ge3
Would love to be kept updated on any progress.
