Hi i have just built ESX lab server with following hardware specs.

Hardware Specs:

Motherboard: Asus Z8PE-D18
CPU: 2 x 6 core Intel X5650
RAM: Hyinx 24GB DDR3 ECC
RAID: LSI MegaRaid MR10
iSCSI: Q-Logic Single port iSCSI HBA
CD-Rom: SATA CD Drive
HDD: 1 x Seagate 320GB SATA II
HDD: 3 x Seagate 1.5TB (RAID-5)

Hello,
Just in case you still access the forum from time to time....
I am planning to build a lab based on the same mobo.
What do you mean below by RAID: LSI MegaRaid MR10 ?by
Motherboard: Asus Z8PE-D18
CPU: 2 x 6 core Intel X5650
RAM: Hyinx 24GB DDR3 ECC
RAID: LSI MegaRaid MR10
iSCSI: Q-Logic Single port iSCSI HBA
CD-Rom: SATA CD Drive
HDD: 1 x Seagate 320GB SATA II
HDD: 3 x Seagate 1.5TB (RAID-5)
LAN : 2 x Onboard
VM DirectPathIO (VT-d) = yes
VT-x = yes
Onboard SATA controller also works.


Is this the RAID feature provided on the board ? How do you use it ?
On which drive is installed ESX ? Sata Seagate 320 GB STAA II ?
Were you able to see RAID drives 1,5 TB from ESX ?
Where is your Datastore ?
Thanks in advance for you r answers....
Wojciech


P.S. Any other usefull remarks on this mobo card a couple of month later ??
