Post HP/Dell RAID controllers in white box
My esxi5.0 box is a supermicro board w/ a HP SmartArray P600; it works just fine, however when one goes to Configuration->Health Status->expand, I only get Processors & Software components. If this were a real HP installed w/ the HP customized copy of ESXi I would get another heading "Storage" for my local attached storage, where one can ID all of the individual drives. I would like to get to that point.

I was able to find the specific VIB's for the Smart Array's (HP hpvsa Driver & HP hpsa Driver; I installed them and they show up in Software components. However no storage heading. I tried to install the "HP ESXi Offline Bundle for VMware ESXi", except during install I get an error message: "Bios vendor HP is required but the bios vender is supermicro....."
