VMWare Esxi 6 Unable to Find Controller Adaptec 5805

This post was originally published on this site

Hi All,

 

I have a PC installed VMWare 6.0.0 build 2494585

Adaptec ASR-5805 512 MB with latest firmware No BBU.

 

Below are VIB that I have installed to the machine.

 

esxcli software vib list | grep aacraid

scsi-aacraid                   6.0.6.2.1.41024-1OEM.600.0.0.2494585  Adaptec_Inc  VMwareCertified     2018-05-01

 

esxcli software vib list | grep arcconf

arcconf                        1.00-1                                Adaptec      unknown             2018-04-30

 

I run ARCCONF on a guest OS Windows 2008 R2 x64.

Installed the ARCCONF from the software download for 5805.

 

C:Program Files (x86)AdaptecRemoteArcconf>arcconf setvmcredential 192.168.6.55 5989 root password

 

Command completed successfully.

 

C:Program Files (x86)AdaptecRemoteArcconf>arcconf getstatus 1

Controllers found: 0

Invalid controller number.

 

C:Program Files (x86)AdaptecRemoteArcconf>

 

Why it couldn’t find the controller? Is the ARCCONF not compatible on Esxi 6?

Do I have to install CLI and CIM from Adaptec 6805 msm_vmware_v1_08_21375 ?

 

Thank you.

-Bayu
