Can not add the new disk

Recommended Posts

Hi there,


I have an issue when trying to add a new disk (from rma). As usual, after receiving it, i create vmdk from esxi


#vmkfstools -z /vmfs/devices/disks/t10.ATA_____WDC_WD40EFRX2D68N32N0_________________________WD2DWCC7K5NPxxxx /vmfs/vo


I added an existing hard disk from the vm. When i start,i have nothing (no ssh, no ping, no web access). Event after 20 minutes


If I delete the new disk, everything is working fine. Unfortunately, I seems no recording solething on the log. I attach the log here


Not sure to help but the new one isn't look the same as these others.


New disk: WDC_WD40EFRX2D68N32N0

others disk (2 disks):WDC_WD40EFRX2D68WT0N0


What do you thing?

Sorry if this is *** obvious and you have checked this - but is the VM trying to boot from the new disk rather than from the Xpenology boot loader?

Hi, there is no obvious question :wink:


It did not boot from another disk because i did not touch it. Furthermore, when unattach the new disk it starts nicely again.


Anyway, I plug the new disk to my laptop. Have a look and put back on the ESXI. I also replace SATA cable and voilà ! It starts with the new disk !


I am reparing the raid..It should be fine now.


Thanks anyway :smile:
