ESXi 6 Microserver Gen 8 SSD Persistent Storage problem

Looking for help I am new to Esxi and the HP Microserver Gen8

 

I have installed HP's ESXi v6 without  problem onto an internal Micro SD card.

I have an OCZ new SSD installed in slot 1.

 

I ran this command to ensure the drive was clean (I think it is right)

partedUtil mklabel /dev/disks/t10.ATA_____OCZ2DARC100______________________________A22L1061509001582___ msdos

I see the drive in VSphere client when I try and add as persistent storage the progress does not change and hangs.

 

The following error seems to be looping if I check the status please see the image.

 

 

 "WARNING : SCSILinuxAbortCommands:1837:Failed, Driver ahci , for vmhba0"

seems to then loop on hard resetting

 

Can anyone give me some guidance on this please ?

 

Thanks in advance

Re: ESXi 6 Microserver Gen 8 SSD Persistent Storage problem

Hello,

 

One of the reason could be drive showing as Non-SSD.

 

Check if the SSD is detected properly; go to Host/Configuration/Storage/Devices and check drive type it should show either SSD or Non-SSD.

 

In case it shows Non-SSD try tagging the drive as SSD, follow the below link which provides the steps to do.
