EXi installer does not recognize MSA50



I have installed EXI V5.1 on a DL385 G6 server with MSA50 attached to it.

The HDs are divided to 3 Raids: one for the OS (HyperVisor) and two more Raids to be used as datastore. But, unfortunately the installation does not recognize the MSA50 raid at all and therefore I cannot add or use it as datastore…

Do you know why?

Hello, what Smart Arrar controller do you have in server? Is it attached to MSA50? Are there any luns? You should see them under storage adapters configuration in ESXi.

What is the controller used?
 and is the controller avilable in BIOS?
