I've been struggling with a new VMware server we recently got. Everything installed fine, but I'm unable to manage the RAID card. The built-in monitoring works (kind of), but I need to manage it, not just monitor it. LSI support has been little help, just like their documentation, evidently.
I've installed MegaRAID Storage Manager (MSM) in different ways, on different machines, followed all sorts of directions, but the host never gets discovered in the application. Has anyone gotten this to work in ESXi 4.1?
Alternatively, what is a good SAS RAID card that is manageable in ESXi 4.1? One with RAID 6. I may be sending this server back (or at least the RAID card) if I can't get it working very soon.
