Adaptec 6805T drivers question

  • 1.  Adaptec 6805T drivers question

    Posted Apr 13, 2020 04:15 PM

    For my old 6.5 installation I had to download the Adaptec/Microsemi aacraid drivers for my https://storage.microsemi.com/en-us/support/raid/sas_raid/sas-6805t/  and create a customised ISO installation disk to have it working with ESX.

    Now I've upgraded to ESXi 6.7 via command line, it works out of the box but I don't see the status of the controller/RAID under Monitor/Storage any more.

    Somehow I found this page VMware Compatibility Guide - I/O Device Search

    Am I reading well that in 6.7 my controller (6805T is supported out of the box with no vendor vib needed?

    If so how do I go replacing the aacraid/CIM from 3rd party to vmware without reinstalling everything?

    Thanks
