im am trying to installe esx server3 on a hp netserver 2000, 2cpu, 1.5gb ram and a raid 5 partition on an adaptec advanced raid 9001M
everything goes well until it wants to actually format the partitions.
it seems to be doing something, but after a few second it say's that the volumes could not be mounted, probaly the volumes are not formatted.
it refers to volumes asd2
does anybod hav any idea what i do wrong?
thanx in advance.
I have a problem like this when I'm tring to use a disk/raid controllers not listed on I/O Compatibility Guide (http://www.vmware.com/pdf/vi3_io_guide.pdf).
If ESX dont see your disk array, you dont be able to format/create partitions. I guess if you change the controller, maybe works.
