VMware error with p700m connected to MDS600

Hi All,

I am attempting to connect a BL460c G6 running VMware ESX 4, via SAS BL Switches to a MDS600.

I have zoned the drives (via SAS BL Switches) and the p700m controller BIOS has connected and established a RAID5 set with 7x1TB Drives.

VMware ESX 4 is seeing the p700m controller but reporting a zero value for the drive capacity.

Is there anything I need to do to get VMware to recognise the MDS600 drives as presented?

Regards,

Dimantha.

Hi,
max LUN (disk) size for ESX is 2TB.

You have to create several smaller disks/luns with size smaller than 2TB.
