    Why does ESXi 6 host only see 1 LUN through HBA 12 go SAS  ?

    darantasia Lurker

      Hello,

       

      I Installed our new small virtual architecture with 2 x D430 and one direct storage SCV2020. Through my vcenter appliance I can see the Avago (LSI Logic) Dell 12Gbps SAS HBA and succedeed in mounting 1 datastore but my other LUNs can't be seen even after one reboot and a new discovery. My cluster HA was also active but after 1 of my 2 hosts reboot the rebooted host does not see the HBA anymore and the cluster is no longer active...

       

      I've checked my esx

       

      esxcfg-scsidevs –a :

      vmhba2  lsi_msgpt3        link-n/a sas.51866da05571e700 (0000:05:00.0) Avago (LSI Logic) Dell 12Gbps SAS HBA external


      Driver version

      vmkload_mod -s lsi_msgpt3 | grep Version :

      Version: 10.00.03.00-1OEM.600.0.0.2768847

      Vendor info :

      vmkchdev -l |grep vmhba2

      0000:05:00.0 1000:0097 1028:1f46 vmkernel vmhba2

      GET ESX VERSION INFO vmware –vl

        VMware ESXi 6.0.0 build-3568940
      VMware ESXi 6.0.0 Update 1

      On my vmware site the recommended versions according to my vendor ids are : (so the first is the one installed on my system)

      Should i change of driver ? Or is it another problem?

       

      Thank you.
