Hi, can someone please tell me a compatible mobo with onboard SATA that works with ESX 3.5? I'm trying to find an inexpensive solution for a home lab environment.
Tyan Tomcat K8E (S2865)
Tyan Thunder K8SE (S2892)
These motherboards work fine with "ESX 3.0.2 Update 1" and "ESX 3.5.0".
I have both of them in a ESX Cluster (vMotion) arrangement talking to a home-brewn iSCSI SAN (Centos5.1 with IETD 0.4.15).
Steven, could you please give me some details about the steps you've followed to install ESX on the S2892 ?
I'm trying to install it using a single 250 MB sata 2 drive connected to the NVidia RAID in a spanned configuration, but setup hangs when detecting ata drives. I've read on the forum that a similar configuration using the S2895 motherboard works, and your results are encouraging, but I wonder if something else should be done, at least to complete setup.
I'm using the latest bios, 2.05.
