S1200BTL
« on: February 04, 2013, 10:59:53 AM »
I'm using the S1200BTL as a small VM server for testing and a few backup files.  It's currently running VM 5.   
Is there any problems with upgrading it to VM 5.1?  Just curious if anyone that has upgraded has had any issues with drivers or compatibility.

The S1200BTL can definitely run ESXi 5.1 with no issues.  Do you know which model RAID controller that you have?  Is it onboard or a dedicated PCI-E card?  I could double check on the controller also for you.  Most of the latest cards we have used are compatible with 5.1 also.

"RAID CONTROLLER, ADAPTEC 6405 4-PORT SATA/SAS 600, 2271100-R"  is what it says on the quote when we got it.
If you want, I can send you the serial number and any other information.
