Firmware on updated to 5. I have experienced the exact same problem since I upgraded from ESXi 5. Your instructions worked exactly. We tried to create an image for version 6 We used the free version of ESXi with all its limitations A problem was that the documentation references an “offline software depot”. I just ran across with the same problem. Everything seems to run without problems now of course it can still fail in long term test, but it needs time to evaluate.

So adaptec is a dead end on vmware. What’s new in vSphere 6.
So we had to create our own ESXi image with the Adaptec driver. I have the same problem. Adaptec Storage Manager version v6.

As of May 30there are not any updated drivers for ESXi 4. I did ensure that the hardware was compatible with the OS before moving forward, however as you mentioned I should have indicated that I did indeed specifically check for my card on VMWare’s site. We tried to create an image for version 6 We used the free version of ESXi with all its limitations A problem was that the documentation references an “offline software depot”.
I have several adaptec and E controllers.
Create a “Extra” sub folder, and extract the. Not right, because it’s also possible to use an online depot.
Refresh storage and storage adapters – nothing. You can also try using a boot cd or a flash drive with a clean copy esx or a Linux distro to test the controller. We thought that the new ESXi 6 could contain the driver, but it didn’t. It was supported in general but the driver was not included.
Everything seems to run without problems now of course it can still fail in long term test, but it needs time to evaluate. I can reinstall ESXi and leave the datastores alone and on the post install reboot they come essxi. Ah I had a quick look and couldn’t see it but on mobile so didn’t look hard!
I just ran across with the same problem. By using the website, you agree with storing the cookies on your computer.

We assemble and deliver in Europe within 24 hours. I have an Amahi server running on this, and as I’ve been building up quite a aadaptec of data and want to make this server a target for all of my backups, I wanted to add some storage redundancy.
We found some hints in different blogs but no complete description. We want to test the new drivers for aeaptec than 1 year but we have not managed in any of our hosts to update it and make it work. I have tried with the latest maxView Storage manager and latest arcconf and arcsmis, but it does not work.
