    Server:33650 M3

    OS: ESXi 4.1.0

    RAID config: RAID 0

    Hi Everyone,

    I just bought a 500GB hot swap hard drive, based on the above specs, how do i configure it to become a data store? VM host cant seem to detect the new hard drive even if i try to rescan for a new storage it seems to be not detected. Do i need to mount it using CLI? because i remember when i set up the esxi 4.1 host i have to mount the optical drive before it gets recognized. Please help.

    I just want to add that the additional drive is not only intended for back up but to be used as a regular data store (for creating new vm machines and its vmdk).

    Have you rebooted the host after installing the drive?
