I'ts not working. I just tried it. But it sees the Drives as seperated drives and not the RAID0 i just created.
Only way at this point is with the MegaRaid6460-16i (Wich i recently bought)
You need also this cable 05-50062-00 (Bright Green Cable's)
But it is only possible to attach a maximum of 4 NVME drives to 1 controller.
Per INTEL "For ESXi, the Intel® product does not provide full Intel® VROC RAID features, so it is labeled the Intel® VMD-enabled NVMe Driver for ESXi. "
So the Driver has the Raid Function Disabled.
Thank you for the answers...
Because I wanted raid for my main datastore, and I kind off figured what you guys confirmed, I decided to go with a SMC SYS-1029U-E1CRTP2 server & AOC-S3108L-H8iR-16DD raid card and a pair of XS1600ME70004 SAS SSD's in raid 1 config.
For my use they are more than enough...
It works as it should and the volume is presented to esxi no problems.
The only "problem" when going with SAS SSD's is that one doesn't have as many choices as I would like to have.
Choices were down to seagate, wd and Kioxia drives all with 10dw/d endurance rating....
Time will tell how the drives will hold up.
I am now in the process of deciding which backup sw (for the vm's) to go with...
