esxi - dsm not present after removing volume 1


Recommended Posts

hello, should be an easy task but i can not understand...


i have xpenology installed on esxi 6.7 (God bless snapshots), i am running out of space on the physical drive where i store the volume1.

so i created another virtual disk on external usb drive, a new storage pool and a new volume2 where i moved installed apps and all shared folders.

After deleting volume1 and rebooting is asked to install DSM and configure system like is new.

As i know DSM in mirrored on all installed disks (for synology nas) but looks like is different with virtual environment (?)

Tried to change the sata setting for virtual machine but without any luck.

any idea?


now i reverted to previous state but steel need to make the job as need to free space on the disk.
