Intel S2600TPR server Vmware ESXI 6.5 Raid Drivers

I have a Intel S2600TPR server and need the latest raid driver for VMware ESXI 6.5.

Windows 7 raid drivers not functional, therefor I need to install VMware to enable me to load windows 7 on a VM.

Please supply me with Raid drivers for VMware ESXI 6.5.

Hello Rudi,

 

 

In order to have a clear picture of your issue let me ask you what RAID controller is installed on your server? Or are you using any of the embedded software RAID solutions (ESRT2, RSTe)?

 

 

In the meantime consider that Vmware* ESXi does not support any kind of software RAID solutions and will detect the HDDs as AHCI individual devices.

 

Furthermore ESXi 6.5 does not show up under the tested OS for this board, you can check it on the following document:

 

http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/000007872.html http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/000007872.html

 

 

Even thou, the implementation of an actual hardware RAID controller like the ones listed on http://www.intelraid.com/ http://www.intelraid.com/ should allow you to install ESXi 6.5 on a RAID volume and be detected by the VMs.

 

 

Will be looking forward for your comments.

 

 

Regards

 

 

Jose H.
