scsi0.pciSlotNumber = 160 ???

Jump to solution

recently I saw a few VMs with this entry in the vmx

scsi0.pciSlotNumber = 160

what the heck is it - it should be 16 right ?

Other possibility is LSI-SAS, which is a PCIe card and I don't recall where the base slot number for PCIe is, but it might be 160. PCI and PCIe occupy the same slot number namespace.

thanks - that was the missing piece.

You are right - all the VMs where I have seen this entry used SAS-controller

would this be correct for adding 4 SAS controllers ?

scsi0.present = "TRUE"

scsi0.virtualDev = "lsisas1068"

scsi0.pciSlotNumber = "160"

scsi1.present = "TRUE"

scsi1.virtualDev = "lsisas1068"

scsi1.pciSlotNumber = "161"

scsi2.present = "TRUE"

scsi2.virtualDev = "lsisas1068"

scsi2.pciSlotNumber = "162"

scsi3.present = "TRUE"

scsi3.virtualDev = "lsisas1068"

scsi3.pciSlotNumber = "163"
