  • HP ML110 g5 ESXi 4.1

    Hi

    I have HP Proliant ML110 G5 and I want use it with VMware ESXi 4.1. I don't have any experience with VMware. I was able to install ESXi 4.1 on USB pen drive. All fine but Datastore is empty (I tried ESXi 4.0 and the same problem). I can't change any settings in Configuration>Hardware>Advanced Settings because it shows me "Host does not support passthrough configuration". I'm confused and can't find any info on google. Is it possible to run ESXi 4.1 on thise server?

    server config (original configuration):

    ProLiant ML110 G5
    Proliant BIOS 015
    version 0151113
    build date 11/13/08
    just added memory 2x2gb kingstone

    BIOS settings:

    Advanced Chipset Controle:
    Native Mode Operation: serial ATA

    Advanced Processor Options:
    Intel(R) Virtualization Technology: enabled

    Regards

    Michal

    That's more than likely a limitation of the hardware. The ML110 G5 is after all only an entry level pedestal server.
    And your datastore would be empty if its a new build. Can you create virtual machines as normal or even upload a file to the datastore? Assuming of course you have the datastore configured correctly.

      ESXi probably has no drivers for the disk controller. You could try to run hyper-v on the machine.

        Beginnings are always difficult .

        I didin't know I have to configure datastore first .Sometimes the simplest things do not come to the head . Can you recommend a good source of basic information on how to set up the first machine like w2k8 etc.

        Thanks for help

          A simple google search will return most of what you are looking for.
