    Can't add Datastore

    tris0h0h7 Lurker

      Hi all, now i am very new to VMware and only started playing about with it a few days ago.

       

      I have installed ESXi 6.0 on the local hard disk of a Dell PowerEdge cs24-nv7 Server.

       

      I have done all configurations, IP, DNS, DHCP, Hostname etc.

       

      I can SSH to the ESXi server and can also login via vSphere Client successfully, however when it try to create a Datastore there are no available Disks/Lun (See screenshot)

      It's as if ESXi can't detect my hard drive.

       

      Now i have looked around and a few websites point out to deleting all partitions but i can't even do this as my /disks directory seems empty.

      As you can see the disks file seems to be empty.

       

      Also esxcfg-scsi -a outputs this

       

      [root@localhost:~] esxcfg-scsidevs -a
