I’m running ESXi 4.1 my server and have an external network HDD that stores all data. I want to add the HDD to an existing VM as a 2nd HDD? While the disk is recognized by ESXi/VSphere, I get a message that I need to format the disk in order to use it. IS there anything I can do short of wiping the drive?
