Just found that on ESXi build 3620759, all vaai status are disabled by default, you can enable delete status by:

esxcli storage core device vaai status set -D 1 -d t10.xxxxxxxxxxxx

Hello Humay,

We advise you to try the 1.2.0.27-4 VMWare driver that can be obtained from http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/detail.php?deviceCategory=io&productid=38469&deviceCat... VMware Compatibility Guide: I/O Device Search website.

Please be advised that the latest firmware 8DV10171 is required for this driver version.
