ESXi 6.5 HP Microserver Gen8 - B120i do not detect ODD - CDROM / DVD Drive


Recommended Posts

I tried to update my Microserver Gen 8 with internal B120i to ESXI 6.5. U3 (HP Custom Image).


My configuration:

HP Gen 8 with  B120i with 4 x 3TB WD Red and internal CDRom / DVD over ODD Port 5 at internal B120i 

configured 2 logical Drives over B120i Raid

Bios Configuration is RAID


In ESXI 6.0 U3 everything is detected:  both logical drives and also DVD device. So that i could passtrough my physical DVD to my VMs.


After Update (offline update) and also i tried new install to ESXI 6.5 U3 HP Custom Image.  I used HPE-ESXi-6.5.0-Update3-iso-preGen9-650.U3. (Hewlett Packard Enterprise) with 6.5.0 Update 3 (Build 14990892). hpsva module changed to hpvsa-5.5.0-88.zip.


Esxi 6.5 also detected the logical drives in B120i. This works ...  but NOT my physical CR ROM DVD device. ESXI 6.5 used hpvsa driver is hpvsa-5.5.0-88.zip .....


could somebody help me ...  so that my esxi 6.5 will also detect my physical DVD device on B120i
