  • 1.  Datastore not appearing for 4 minutes 30 seconds after reboot

    Hello,

    I noticed the datastore and drive (kingston_sa2000m8500g) not showing after esxi (8U1) reboot about 4 minutes 30 seconds. After this time it's appears ands working everything.

    How can I fix this kind of "lag"?

    Thank You

    It's a local datastore (NVMe on motherboard).

    Is it a Server or standard PC? In case of server I would suggest updating BIOS first.

    In case you have RAID Ctrl update driver and firmware too. 

     

    In case this is PC - I am not sure that installing ESXi on top of that, shortly saying, Bare metal - good idea.

    Check HCL if your NVMe is compatible with ESXi

    It's a server but a small one (Supermicro X11SCL-IF motherboard) with the lates BIOS, and no RAID controller.

    I checked the NVMe is not listed BUT it worked before (until one specific restart) and worked with ESXI v6 too.
