Hi Everybody,

One more comment:

If you have a 3ware 9650 raid controller you have to add the following line to simple.map: (/etc/vmware/simple.map)

13c1:1004 0000:0000 storage 3w_9xxx.o

Yes it was published yesterday. The only restriction by 3ware for ESXi that disks on a 3ware controller can be only a secondary storage...

The attached oem.tgz helps to make it to be a primary one!

Thanks!

I was waiting for this update. I have been checking the site every so often but would have missed it. Now I get to play with ESXi4 over the weekend!

Just a warning on 3wares doc. I have not been able to get it to install, the nosigcheck option is not found.

In a vast irony of failing to look carefully first, I also posted one.

Obviously a good use of my time!
