I finally got Esx 5.5 working, I sacrificed my Cache SSD to a logical disk and installed onto that, then after the install I went back and initialized the rest of the disks into a R6 55TB logical disk. A better way to do this would be a usb from ovh....

Or even Centos 6, XEN 4.2 package is prebuilt for that and it's very solid and easy to get up and running. Allocate your own VM repositaries at will then. I've got detailed install steps if you want (just built them on SYS-1)

Hello,

My plan was to run ESX 5.5 on the server, but I cant get it to install without errors (invalid partition table)

So, I tried Proxmox, and though it installs fine, I can only see 15TB of the 55~TB (72TB Raid6)

My goal is to have isolated VM's that I can assign various amounts of storage space to.

Any ideas?
