HDD not getting detected on the virtual nested esxi host 5.5

Jump to solution

Hi All,

on my home desktop I have installed ESXi on the bare metal on USB drive. From a laptop I was able to connect to it. I created a nested esxi and followed

Howto: Create a nested lab‌ however it did not help.

On the bare metal desktop the esxi is able to recognize the network and it works fine.

The nested esxi is not abkle to see hdd. Anu suggestions ?

Thanks

Did you select ESXi as the OS for the nested host? Which HDD controller model is used for the nested host(s).

Hi Andre,

thanks for replying

Yes the OS is selected as ESXi for the nested esxi. How do I check which HDD controller model is selected? Can you please share the steps to check.

Thanks

Hi Andre,

I checked and found that the HDD Controller had changed to para virtualization which was not supported as soon as I changed it to LSI SAS the HDD's were recognized ....

Thanks for your suggestion
