Xpenology + Esxi add drives

Recommended Posts

Current situation => Esxi Server 6.5 + DSM 6.0.2 jun loader 

I have installed DSM 6.0.2 with the jun loader at a Esxi server. The Dsm is installed at a SSD drive with 60gb, that is volume 1.

For Volume 2 i have 4x 4Tb disks. At each disk i have created a datastore. Then  imported each datastore in the DSM for the creation of a Raid5 => 10tb Volume2.

After reboot i have the following message from esxi => There is no more space for virtual disk ...         and the Xpenology can't start anymore.

Any suggestions why i have this message? Is there a better way to add the 4x 4Tb disks to the Xpenology?

Are you created some snapshot?  the Xpenology*-000002.vmdk means that exist some snapshot, this means that the ESX needs space to save the all data changes  from the  snapshot.

 

If the 4 virtual hard disk are a passthough the  datastastore where is saved the virtual Nas maybe not have enough space to save the data.

In my opinion the first action is remove the snapshot or consolidate.

Remove these all datastores.

Stay only the default 1. When you locate the DSM machine.

Login by ssh.

# ls -l /vmfs/devices/disks

And find the devices named "t10..."

# cd /vmfs/volumes/dsmdatastorename

# vmkfstools -z /vmfs/devices/disks/t10.ani newdisk1.vmdk

 

With this you create a passthru disk.

Now edit the DSM machine and add this existin disk. SATA. And independent.

If not run add another SATA drive and attach the disk to it.

 

With this sistem you pass the full fisical disk to the DSM machine
