Can't create New Datastore on a logical drive (local storage and greyed out)

Jump to solution

Hey Guys,

I'll be starting my VCP training next year, so i'm migrating my home server from bare metal to hypervisor.

I already have some basic VMware knowledge, however i'm given the opportunity to specialise so i'm really excited to start!

So my home server (HP DL380 G8) has 8 disks.

2x SSD Raid 0

2x HDD Raid 1

4x HDD Raid 10

When creating the datastores with my first 2 raid config's, i'm having no trouble at all.

However i cant sees to create a datastore on my raid 10 config.

Although the status in my raid controller indicates that it's fine and also in the devices overview (see screen).

I'm running ESXi 6.5.0 Update 1 (Build 5969303)

Any ideas? Smiley Sad

I figured it out.

I already had the device added as RDM to the VM. :smileysilly:
