I've just installed ESXi on a device with an 120GB NVMe disk but cannot see the datastore.
Storage on the dashboard is reading as: "Used 0B, Free 0B, Capacity 0B) NaN%
The adapter is visible in Storage -> Devices and the VMFSL partition is visible in the partition section.
I followed this thread: VMWare ESXI 6.5 - How to create local datastore (where ESXI 6.5 is installed) ? Error "No partition.... but using the command esxcfg-volume -l results in no output.
Does anyone have any recommendations on how to proceed?
That's by design. ESXi 7.0 uses up to ~130GB on the installation disk for the system. A datastore is only created on larger disks/LUNs.
