  • 1.  Support for Intel C612 controller driver RAID?

    Posted Dec 19, 2019 02:27 AM

    Hi All I have the Supermicro 1U server model SYS-6018R-WTR, which is in the VMWare compatibility guide for ESXi 6.7 u3.

    The motherboard in the server is the X10DRW-i, which has the Intel C612 controller driver for RAID for the onboard SATA. However, when I install ESXi, the RAID volume I created does not show, it still shows as separate, individual disks. Is there a driver available for this RAID controller, or a workaround to get RAID working?

    Appreciate any input.

    I assume its one of the following?

    VMware Compatibility Guide - I/O Device Search

    sounds like the RAID driver isnt installed, try running the below command and let us know what you have installed

    esxcli software vib list

    Thanks for the reply, it's the C612, so I'm assuming it's one of those in the C610 series? Here's the output:
