Post ESXi 4.1 u1 build 348481 Asus M3A79-T Deluxe
I would like to confirm that following configuration is working with ESXi 4.1 update 1 build 348481

CPU: AMD Phenom 9850 x4 2,5 Ghz
MB: ASUS M3A79-T Deluxe BIOS 1608
RAM: 8GB 800Mhz (4 x 2GB - Dual Channel)
HDD: 2 x 500GB WD5001AALS
RAID: Sil3512 2xSATA RAID1
NIC: Marvell 88E8056 Gigabit Ethernet Controller

With RAID 1 I have to test it if mirroring is actually working, because when installing it recognize 2 disks but after installation I deleted datastore 2 and it looks like sil3512 is doing mirroring by itself, but still I'm not 100% sure so I'll post you the result about that.

Best regards, Leo

OK Final conclusion:

NIC: Marvell 88E8056 Gigabit Ethernet Controller ---> works only with sky2 driver.

RAID: Sil3512 2xSATA RAID1 ---> recognise only single disk, even if the any RAID configuration is set or none so I added ServeRAID M5014 in plugged in 2 SATA disks in RAID1 and it works like a charm.


Best regards
