Configure storage on the host

You can use the storage assigned to an ESXi host as either a Virtual Machine File System (VMFS) datastore or a raw device mapping (RDM). RDMs are not supported on the NVMe over Fibre Channel protocol.

Before you begin

The volumes mapped to the ESXi host must have been discovered properly.

About this task

All 6.x and 7 x versions of ESXi support VMFS versions 5 and 6.
