ESXi 4.1 with 3ware 9550SX(U)-8LP
I just finished to get ESXi 4.1 work together with 3ware 9550SX(U)-8LP by using an customized oem.tgz from this forums download page. And I also used the mkESXiaio script. Thanks to everyone posting in this forum - keep this good work going on.
Some details to reproduce:
- Intel S5000VSA board
- Onboard Intel pro NIC (works great)
- 3ware 9550SX(U)-8LP (one RAID 5 with 5x300 GB SATA II and one Hot Spare)
- ESXi 4.1 with THIS OEM.TGZ
- 8 GB RAM
- 2 Xeon CPU's 2.0 GHz (sry can't recongnize the model number)
- onboard controller not tested
The script builded iso file installed directly onto the 9550SX attached RAID and also came up correctly after installation. No need to copy the oem.tgz manually into the installed ESXi.
