We’ve set up VMWare ESX3i on a single disk on our HP DL140 Server. We’re now trying to set up a RAID array, using the in-built LSI Logic SAS1068 RAID controller. Unfortunately, it says that there’s not enough space at the end of the disk, and it would need to be formatted, in order to create the array. There is over 100 Gb available, so deleting something from the disk is unlikely to make any difference.
Does anyone have any experience with this or anything similar? Does it have anything to do with the way VMWare partitions the disk, (ie not NTFS or FAT)?
Thanks for your help,
