Hi all, Just built a xeon server tower all is well but problems with ESXI 4 and LSI (3ware) 9600se Hardware raid controller. I first of all built my raid which is a 8 disk raid 6 with 256k stripe size and auto rebuild (hot swoppable) I went ahead and installed ESXI 4 on a USB FLASH DRIVE, it installed fine, then installed VSphere on my desktop pc running xp, connected to the Exsi server via VSphere over the network. Then installed the latest Esxi patch along with the Esxi 4.0 3ware 9600se raid drivers, it installs fine and then asks for reeboot, after reboot I connect to the server again using VSphere and it does NOT detect my raid controller. Been messin with it all day and cannot get this OS to detect my raid controller. Has anybody used this OS before? or even had the same problem? if so please reply any help would be much apreciated. BTW: I'm going to install windows 7 on this server tomorrow to see if there are any issues with the raid controller but I personally think the raid controller is in full working order.
