I am new with ESXi server and virtual machine. With some tutorial I make my hardware works: now I have ESXi 6.7 load from a internal USB Stick (4Gb) I create a datastore on external USB Stick (32Gb) where I installa a VM with XPEnology I use the internal SATA HDD like phisycal drive on VM (map with vmkfstools -z on a local vmdk ) All works with DSM 6.2.2 that was my goal BUT my problem is that i HAVE to use also two NTFS HDD connected on external USB3 to share with XPEnology ... NOW in point 2. (to use a datastore on external USB) I use also command "chkconfig usbarbitrator off" and I think this is WHY I can't set the external NTFS HDD on virtual machine! if I set "chkconfig usbarbitrator on" after reboot, i can't see the datastore on external USB... so ESXi not find VM... what is the correct method to use a datastore on USB AND USB passthrough for my USB NTFS HDD? The perfect solution (for me) was to use the free USB space on the internal USB stick Is there a way to use the same USB STICK for boot ESXi and create a datastore for VM in the free space ? I not find a tutorial to make this... but only to use a entire USB stick, so I have to use two USB stick: one for boot and one for datastore Thanks
