problem configuring ESXi AND ADAPTEC ASR-240

Jump to solution

When I try to add new storage using the Storage Wizard. the Device Location shows: device as vmhba2:0:0 with a capacity of 464.99 GB. So the drives seem visible... but when I use the next button to proceed to Current Disk Layout I get a messge 'Unable to read partition information from this disk.' I have formatted the disks using the bios raid configuration... nothing more. Any help ?

You might want to boot using a live CD or something similar, or go into the Unsupported console if you're willing to take that risk, and use fdisk to write a partition table to the drives.
