H710 fails to import foreign config

Dell R720 upgraded from H310 to H710. Dell forum says swap cards and import foreign config, however I do not get prompt at post screen and it is "greyed" out in UEFI setup and controller setup? On the post screen it does detect 4 virtual drives as expected. I have mixed SAS, SATA and SSD drives. H710 firmware is also up to date. I booted up to ESXi and no disks detected even tho post shows 4 vdisksCapture.PNGCapture2.PNG

Re: H710 fails to import foreign config

Hi,

 

It seems that the configuration have been migrated successfully, the H710 RAID BIOS shows all VD configurations. 

 

ESXi might be missing the H710 driver, as it only has H310 driver after it's being installed. You may need to refer to VMware support site to download H710 driver according to the firmware installed. 


Thanks,
