I installed esxi on my newly acquired server. Now this is all new to me so I am still trying to figure out what the heck I am doing.
I successfully created a virtual machine for openmediavault - nothing special just 1cpu and 1 gb of ram allocated to it.
My question is how do I get it to access other disks that are not part of the virtual machine??? I do not currently have any other disks installed in the server other than the one that has esxi and the virtual machine for openmediavault.
I tried to read up on vmware's site and it seems to say that any drives physically in host will show on the vm but I would then assume the vm could see left over space on the drive.
I hope this is all making sense.
so to explain a bit more say for example: 70gb drive with esxi installed. 16gb vm for open mediavault. How do I utilize the remaining space with openmediavault?? I want to tinker before I add drives in raid configs.
Or maybe I cant till I have another drive not related to either installed?
I can successfully gain access to esxi remotely and the openmediavault which I was pretty surprised about for a first go.
