Video tutorial on how to get XPEnology to run on an HP Microserver Gen8 via ESXi 6.7, and install DSM 6.2 on SSD drive on ODD port, and pass drivebays to VM with RDM (Raw Data Mapping)
MANY Thanx go to the great tutorial already posted here by @luchuma [ Tutorial: Install/DSM 6.2 on ESXi 6.7 ]
I just always prefer to watch a video
Hello again !
So as stated earlier passthrough did not work with P222 set in HBA mode...
I just received my LSI 9211-8i IT mode enabled.
I swapped PCIe cards :
- First thing to notice, CASE FAN noise was quite ennoying with P222, always running above 20%... with LSI card case FAN is at 11%, really better...
- with LSI card, I can't see disk inside ESXi... so no way to add them as RDM.
- I enabled passthrough on LSI card :
