we have LSI 1064E RAID controller with one SAS disk and everything is working fine with this configuration.
Now I want to add a SATA disk and VMWare is not recognizing it. I found out on the link below that with this controller a mix of SAS and SATA is not supported.
"You cannot mix SAS and SATA drives when using a 1064E-based controller."
OK, this is clear for me. But is there an another way to use a mix of SAS and SATA disks? I tried to disconnect the cable that is going from the RAID controller to the HDD bay of the SATA disk but it is still the same.
I have this in BIOS under mass storage
I hope that someone has an idea how to use the SATA disk too on the same server.
p.s. I am a server noob, sorry.
