Storage Essentials 5.1 and VMware


I'm trying to find out if it is possible to use File System Viewer to discover a file server that is a VMware Virtual Machine. When I try to install the CIM extensions on the Windows VM, it won't detect the QLogic HBA since it is masked behind the ESX software. I can complete the CIM extension install and SE will discover the VM, however no volumes are detected. The VM has an RDM on an EVA8100 which is the volume we would like to manage with File System Viewer.

Just heard back from HP that SE will not include support for VMs until 6.1 is released Aug/Sept.
