attach physical drives on vmware player

Recommended Posts

Hello to all,

 

sorry if my question is on another topic already answered, i search but i didn't find something...

 

I am running windows 10 on my main machine and i have xpenology 5.2 installed on vmware player 12 and i want to attach it 2 3tb's and 2 4tb's hdds so i can benefit from SHR. I tried to add physical drive through vmware player but it give's me error, possibly because the drives are above 2tb's.

Is there any way i can add these drives on vmware player or i must install xpenology on esxi or bare metal ?

 

Thank you.
