    Codegear got a reaction from otispresley in How To: Get SMART data passed on from ESXI 5.1 Host   
    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.

    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 2.0.0.260 (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!
