Re: OpenManage Server Administrator 9.2 - webserver only iss

Oh I see, that makes sense. Thanks for the explanation!

My purpose to install the OMSA was to add a new HDD to an existing RAID-5 vmfs5 volume. Unfortunately the iDRAC installed in our server (PowerEdge T630) does not allow me to add a new HDD to a VMFS volume but only to create new vmfs volumes with the blank drives.

As I read in support articles, the OMSA should be capable of doing that in the "Storage" Menu. With the web-server only installation and connecting it to the ESXi host, the "Storage" menu doesn't show up.

It is a little bit off-topic but is there any other way to add a HDD to the vmfs volume, ideally without rebooting the whole machine?
