To convert the IDE disk to SCSI:
- Locate the datastore path where the virtual machine resides.For example:# cd /vmfs/volumes/<datastore_name>/<vm_name>/
- From the ESX Service Console, open the primary disk (.vmdk) using the vi editor. For more information, see Editing files on an ESX host using vi or nano (1020302)
- Look for the line:ddb.adapterType = “ide”
- To change the adapter type to LSI Logic change the line to:ddb.adapterType = “lsilogic”To change the adapter type to Bus Logic change the line to:ddb.adapterType = “buslogic”
- Save the file.
- From VMware Infrastructure/vSphere Client:
- Click Edit Settings for the virtual machine.
- Select the IDE virtual disk.
- Choose to Remove the Disk from the virtual machine.
- Click OK.Caution: Make sure that you do not choose Remove from disk.
- From the Edit Settingsmenu for this virtual machine:
- Click Add > Hard Disk > Use Existing Virtual Disk.
- Navigate to the location of the disk and select to add it into the virtual machine.
- Choose the same controller as in Step 3 as the adapter type. The SCSI ID should read SCSI 0:0.
- If a CDROM device exists in the virtual machine it may need to have the IDE channel adjusted from IDE 0:1 to IDE 0:0. If this option is greyed out, remove the CD-ROM from the virtual machine and add it back. This sets it to IDE 0:0.
Oppure usare il vmware converter
Devo provare su una macchina, poi vi faccio sapere…
