Is it needed to stop guset OS when adding EMC DMX3.

Hi, All

I have Vmware ESX 3.0.2 Server with VC2.0. I have three RHEL4 U4 Guest OS. Now I needed to add two shared FC devices from EMC DMX3.

I want to choose 「Add mapped raw devices」, Generally, Adding disk needs to stop guest OS. I wonder whether adding EMC raw device needs toshutdown guest OS.

Hello,

Yes adding an RDM/RAW device to a VM requires you to shutdown the VM w/ESX 3.x.x.
