I'm having issues to install VMWare ESXi 6.5.0 on a HPE ProLiant ML110 Gen9. I'm using a RAID1, but when i'm installing VMWare is shows 2 data storages and doesn't show the RAID1 that I created. What can I do?
Are you using a software or a hardware raid controller?
Software raid controller B120i isn't supported MicroServer Gen8 B120i: Two RAID arrays - Hewlett Packard Enterprise Community
raid controllers b410i or b420i are supported by VMware
When it works, what was the version of Vsphere?
Smart Array B140i is a software raid controller
What you can try is installing drivers Drivers & Software for HP Dynamic Smart Array B140i Controller - HPE Support Center.

First you must install the vib file on the ESXi server HPE Dynamic Smart Array Controller Driver for VMware vSphere 6.5 (VIB file).
Follow the instructions provided by vladan https://www.vladan.fr/how-to-install-vib-on-vmware-esxi/
Afther the install, reboot the ESXi server
I was facing the same Issue with ESXi 6.5 and the HPE Dynamic Smart Array B140i Controller .
To Fix it you need to download this little utility to inject the Driver in the .ISO
and the Driver:
of cores also the : VMware-VMvisor-Installer-6.5.0.update01-5969303.x86_64.iso from vmware.com to inject the Driver in to.
It works for me!
