Re: external hdd issue

Can you define "external HDD" ?

In some cases it is possible by using a "Raw Device Mapping" (=RDM).

Re: external hdd issue

it is different from storage.I directly connected the external harddisk to ESX server>now I want to make it available in both ESX server and the servers running on ESX ie virtual servers.
