HPE MICROSERVER GEN10 PLUS with S100i SR RAID and VMWARE

Hi

I have a Microserver XEON gen10 PLUS, with S100i SR configured in RAID1. But can't install vmware in this raid.

In HCL I see that this Xeon version is compatible with vmware 6.5U3, 6.7U3 and 7.0. But I can't install this.

Only works without RAID option or I do something wrong? (I use the F10 to install the vmware)

Thank you very much!

Hello, @xvendrell 

The S100i does not support VMware OS. As you mentioend, the only way that the S100i will support ESXi is when it is running in AHCI mode, i.e. the controller does not support RAID. The .S100i QuickSpecs will confirm the same.

Hello,

For S100i controller RAID mode is not supported in ESXi environment, you may change SATA controller Mode to AHCI, this should allow connected HDDs to SATA controller to be seen indiviually to ESXi host.  ( F9> System Configuration > BIOS/Platform Configuration (RBSU) > StorageOptions > SATA Controller Options > Embedded SATA Configuration > SATA AHCI Support > Save)

I see Microserver Gen10 plus supported an add-on PCIe E208i-p controller as well, this support hardware RAID, same could be installed as well for RAID requirements.  Please refer below server quickspecs and Guide to understand requirements of using same.
