    vSphere 6.5 U1 -  Driver for Dell PERC H710 Mini

    MTomasko Novice

      I just upgraded my Dell PowerEdge R320 to 6.5 U1.  When I go into the Host - Monitor - Hardware - Storage, I get the message "The Small Footprint CIM Broker Daemon (SFCBD) is running, but no data has been reported. You may need to install a CIM provider for your storage adapter.". 


      The Dell PERC H710 mini appears to be compatible: VMware Compatibility Guide - I/O Device Search https://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/detail.php?deviceCategory=io&productid=39513


      I found an older post about needing the CIM driver because Dell doesn't provide one: http://en.community.dell.com/techcenter/b/techcenter/archive/2013/07/01/monitoring-dell-poweredge-raid-controllers-in-vm…


      Any help/advice on how I can get my storage data?  I'm just connecting to the web GUI for the host, I don't have vCenter setup yet.
