I want to test a certain configuration on a new server that has 6 disks, configured as 2 virtual disks in
RAID 1 and
RAID 10 configuration.
6 Total Disk Drives
2 x 250 GB RAID 1 Configuration
4 x 2TB RAID 10 Configuration
Currently I have the 250GB mirror set up as
datastore1 and the 4TB raid array as
I'd like to install a guest OSto
datastore1 and allow it to access
datastore2 as a filesystem which will show up in the Linux guest OS as a mount point. I don't plan on installing any guest OS'es to
datastore2, I only want that disk space as raw storage.
Is there a way I can make this happen or was it incorrect to set up the disks as a datastore? I'm not sure if I need to make a virtual iSCSI target or something like that in order to do what I want.
I found this answer but am not sure if that is my solution or if there is some other way.
