    Posted Jun 04, 2013 07:27 AM

    i am trying to open a RDM device with VIX DISKLIB and get an error for both virtual RDM and physical RDM.

    did anybody encountered this error before?

    the error is:

    VixDiskLibGenericWarn: VmfsExtentOpen: Vmfs not supported on this product.

    DISKLIB-LINK :"/vmfs/volumes/512e0bc2-0d1c194b-6aec-00221962ef56/abc/abc_2.vmdk" : failed to open (The specified feature is

    not supported by this version). 

    DISKLIB-CHAIN :

    "/vmfs/volumes/512e0bc2-0d1c194b-6aec-00221962ef56/abc/abc_2.vmdk" : failed to open (The specified feature is

    Not sure which version of ESXi you're using, but I'm going to move this question to the ESXi 5 forum area.

    It seems like the virtual machine is unable to open a referenced virtual machine disk file.
