ESXi 6.7 & Adaptec 6405E

Hi togheter!


I updated my ESXi server with Adaptec 6405E from 5.0 to 6.7 in two steps:

– from 5.0 to 6.0 RIAD-datastore was fine

– then from 6.0 to 6.7. On my first try to update to 6.7 I got en error “adaptec driver are not compatible with 6.7”. So I updated the adaptec driver and after reboot I updated to 6.7 with no errors! But since reboot the RAID-datastore offline. The device, storage an partition are shown but not as datastore.


I tried all adaptec drivers, old and new, from adaptec direct and from VMWare, nothing.


Technical details:
