WD RED 3TB on N54L w/ ESXi 5.5

Recommended Posts

Maybe this will shine some light...

 

How many people here have WD RED 3TB in their N54L?

 

Modded or unmodded BIOS?

OS or hypervisor?

It has been awhile since I used it, but yes the drives will run just fine.  Standard and Modded.

I've run it with Red 4TBs also - up to 5 at once

 

OS: WHS2011

Both of you missed a key point...

What OS?

2008R2 and 2012

 

The OS isn't going to matter as long as it is at least 2008.

I ran the same WHS 2011 in a Hyper-V envionment with WD 3TB Drives and then moved it to a physical box. Why would you think that HyperV would act any differently?

ESXi 5.5 does. Thats why I wanted to know some someone first hand before I try to fix it putting more money in.

 

Does Hyper-V have a RDM function?

I have a feeling that the questions would be answered much quicker if it was actually asked directly in the first post and perhaps making the title a little less vague.

 

From that point...I am revising the topic title.

Good idea cskenney, although I'm not certain riahc3 has made up his mind to use ESXi.
