http://serverfault.com – I am having a problem with on of our ESXi servers and hoping someone can help us resolve it. I just installed ESXi on a server with 2 2TB drives that are in a RAID 1 configuration using an Adaptec 2405 RAID Controller. But for some reason when I try to copy (scp from another ESXi server) a VM over to the server it does the following: Takes forever to transfer When its done we get input/output error notifications I know the drives are good because this server was in a production environment before installing ESXi. I have the same hardware setup on other servers, expect those have 1TB drive (HowTos)
