I have installed VMware esxi 4.0 on HP ML 115 G5 server with single 80
HDD and configured raid-5 with 3*160 HDD. Now I am not able to see raid-5
volume in VMware esxi server. When I am trying to add datastorage in
configure windows there are showing all raid-5 HDD individual Please let me
know how I can configure datastorage on esxi server with raid-5.
Welcome to the VMware Community forums. Your server has a software RAID controller (Intel ICH*R or nVidia MCP) which is not a true hardware RAID controller. The drivers with ESX(i) don't support software RAID for such controllers thus the best you get is a bunch of individual disks.
