ESXI 6.7 - DS3615xs - 0 Bytes HDD issue


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,


Im having issues with my vitrualized XPE.

I am running it on a dell R710 with a H200 HBA(IT-mode).

The issue is that when I pass through the PCI-E HBA 4 all drives get recognized but Synology is reporting that 4 of them are 0 Bytes HDD.

Ex.                        dMGMMoA.png


Esxi VM-settings: Vm2Y3cK.png



Version: DSM 6.2.1-23824 Update 4


Do any of you guys know what the cause of the issue can be ?

In ESXI all drives are recognized.



Kind regards,

@matteoking14 I can not give you any answer, but I do have a question for you: Why is Drive #2 showing as a virtual drive? 



Yeah good catch, the pictures do not correspond. I first tried with a additional passthrough disk which is the one you see in the picture. I then removed it and tried again. Which you see in the Esxi picture.


So maybe you can tell if I pass the disks through Esxi to XPE. Will I loose performance? What are the cons?
