  1. Learning new tricks every day Thank you for sharing otispresley !
  2. Hi Val3ntin, It is feasible, as it works for me. I have WSE2012 in ESXi 5.1. 1. Link your physical disks to ESXi using the RDM technique described in this blog (http://blog.davidwarburton.net/2010/10/25/rdm-mapping-of-local-sata-storage-for-esxi/) 2. In file "C:\Program Files (x86)\StableBit\Scanner\Service\Scanner.Service.exe.config", change setting "UnsafeDirectIo" to "True" - don't forget to reboot ! Good luck.
  3. Alex, This new build fixes problems I had when creating new folders. Thanks! I will later confirm if the reboot are avoided. [EDIT June 6th] There is still some share I have the rename problem... weird. On the positive side, no more reboot.
  4. @Pâl Andreassen and drashna It turned out I had the same problem with my 990FXA-UD5 board - this is what I first thought... The "old" videocard (add-on) I have installed was preventing the I/O passthru. I discovered this fact after forgetting to put back the videocard Just as a safety, even if I only access the ESXi remotely using ESXi vSphere Client, I installed a "GIGABYTE Radeon HD 6450 Silent 1GB DDR3" and the I/O Passthru function as expected. My two ESXi systems support I/O Passthru while powered with different processor generations: AMD 1090T and AMD FX8350. Your FX8150/990FXA-UD3 should act the same.
  5. Physical ESXi 5.1u1 host - Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5 motherboard - AMD Phenon II X6 1090T @ 3.2GHz - 16GB RAM - 1 Hitachi 7K3000 2TB HDD - 7 Hitachi 5K3000 2TB HDDs (accessed by WSE 2012 as RDM disks and totally allocated to DrivePool) Windows Server 2012 Essentials (WSE 2012) Virtual Machine - Allocated 4 vCPU and 8GB RAM - WSE 2012 (latest Windows Updates) - DrivePool (beta) - All 7x 5K3000 disks are dedicated to WSE 2012 for DrivePool thru RDM disks NOTE: Virtualization does not put a significant overhead in performance but allows smooth upgrades between platforms - Migrated from WHS 2011 to WSE 2012 and only had to reassign disks from one virtual machine to another. Voilà! For full story based on WHS 2011, see http://forum.covecube.com/discussion/comment/809#Comment_809
