SR650 ESXi installation on NVME Virtual RAID.

2021-03-09, 8:14 AM

Greetings to all.I would be grateful for advice from those who had experience installing ESXi on NVME Virtual RAID.I upgraded from SAS drives to NVME (Intel P4500). The Provisioning manager managed to create a virtual RAID from 4 NVME disks. The XCC shows that the disks are present. When installing the most recent version, ESXi 7.0 sees disks individually (not in an array). How do I get ESXi to mount on a RAID rather than a separate drive?SR650 (7X06). BMC ver: 5.47. UEFI ver. 2.8

Hello CIS Damir,


I am not sure if you already saw the following information posted to VMware KB, but it looks Intel does not provide full VROC RAID feature and this is why physical drives are only recognized. Please refer to the link below for the details.


Intel VMD and VROC support on ESXi 7.0



Thank you,
