I'm using some kind of Whitebox and my hardware drives are not recognized under Configuration -> Health Status


In ESXi hardware status is monitored using CIM

VMware's CIM Provider Program is open to qualified OEMs and IHVs interested in developing CIM providers for VMware ESX. CIM Provider partners have access to the VMware Workbench CIM Provider Development Kit (CIM PDK) plugin, including a build environment, test framework, and other tools. Partners interact with VMware's R&D engineers to create and test CIM providers and to influence future enhancements to VMware's CIM infrastructure.

CIM Providers


I think it's because you're using "white box" hardware.

Server-class systems provide hooks for VMWare monitoring/health status.
