Hi Vmware communities !
I keep struggling to find a solution to my issue which is the following :
I need to monitor my Serveraid8k Raids using Adaptec Arcconf tool. This is working fine for most of the servers on Esxi 5 except those on Esxi 5.5 Update2 and Esxi 5.1.
I'm not sure the Esxi release is related to my issue, but I just need to create a link from /dev/char/vmkdriver/aac0 (which exists) to /dev/aac0 to get my arcconf tool working correctly.
This is how I made it working on all other servers with different releases of Esxi 5 excluding 5.5U2 and 5.1.
I'm getting error "ln: /dev/aac0: No such file or directory" which is true but not helping (running command ln -s /dev/char/vmkdriver/aac0 /dev/aac0)
And "Function not implemented" if I try a simple touch /dev/test. Ideally I'd like to get this link on boot (familiar with rc.local method already), I noticed all links present in /dev/ are related to /dev/char/vmkdriver already ! Is there a way to add this on boot somewhere with the others ?
For me the issue would look more like a writing/read-only mode issue, but I'm able to link something that is already in /dev/ but no more.
I've tried to compare my Aacraid drivers version, they're matching and I even tried a lower release with no more luck !
Any help would be appreciated !
