xpenology with ESXi 6

Recommended Posts

hi, I have installed ESXi 6 on an GA-H97M WIFI motherboard with Xeon 1231v3. I can boot my Xpenology VM, select setup/install option, but when I connect to the Synology Web assistant it says no hard disks found.

I can see the hard disks in the Vsphere client (advanced settings>storage, so surely they should pass through to the VM? Maybe I am doing something stupid or need to do something to enable them but I am stuck. I have tried attaching various disks but none seem to be visible in Xpenology.

 

I have create a test virtual disk of 30Gb and I can then install DSM successfully so I know my build is ok, its just the physical disks I cannot see.

Any help would be appreciated please.
