I just need to confirm that the Cisco C220 M5SX blades have embedded LSI controller, which hypervisor hides the drives from the ESXi installer? ESXi 5.5.0 (yes i know, environment limited)
I have configured the drives in RAID 1, as a bootable and still doesn't find the drives. Tried in Legacy and UFEI mode and still unable to find. When I have tired to do some research I came across that it is recommended that you use one of the PCI or Mezzanine base controllers?
If you are referring to the embedded 'software raid/MegaRaid_SR', then no, ESXi does not support it, and you won't be able to make it work. You can leave the drives in jbod/AHCI mode, and then esxi will see the individual drives, albeit in a non-redundant config.
I would also suspect you would have issues with CPU support when trying to use the newer CPUs with the old OS.
