I'm trying to create an All-in-one box which consists of ESXi running from an USB stick. Inside of ESXi there will be a vm which has been given direct access to a RAID controller for sharing it's disks via ISCSI back to this underlying ESXi server and also to other ESXi servers on the network.
I'm following the guide posted here http://www.napp-it.org/doc/downloads/all-in-one.pdf.
I purchased a 32GB USB stick for the system and storage vm's data files. The system (ESXi) installs fine onto the stick but after installation there is no datastore and rescanning for one does not reveal one either so I cannot install the storage vm.
How to make USB thumbdrive space visible as a datastore to ESXi 4.1 U1?
