    create new VMFS partition on local Dual-SD module

      Hello,

      have a server with local Dual-SD module from which ESXi boots. There is enough space on it to create a local VMFS partition.

      I tried partedUtil. But i get a "readonly" message.

       

      partedUtil setptbl /vmfs/devices/disks/mpx.vmhba32\:C0\:T0\:L0 gpt "10 11315512 124735453 AA31E02A400F11

      DB9590000C2911D1B8 0"

      gpt

      0 0 0 0

      10 11315512 124735453 AA31E02A400F11DB9590000C2911D1B8 0

      Error: Read-only file system during write on /dev/disks/mpx.vmhba32:C0:T0:L0

      SetPtableGpt: Unable to commit to disk

       

      I think it should be possible to create a new VMFS partition on the free space.

       

      Does somebody has any idea?

       

      Thank you,

      Mike
