Rick Crisci explains how to create a raw device mapping (RDM) on a vSphere 6 VM, shows how to map it to a LUN, and explains the use cases.
- [Instructor] In this video, I'll demonstrate…how to create a raw device mapping…on a virtual machine.…So, let's start by opening the Vmware vSphere Client.…And I'm going to put a esx01.vclass.local,…my user name is root,…and we'll put in the root password.…Launch the vSphere Client,…and directly connect to esxi01.vclass.local.…And when this loads up,…you'll see the inventory of esxi01.vclass.local,…and it includes a virtual machine…that we created called Demo-VM.…
I'm going to right click this virtual machine,…and choose Open Console.…Now here at our console screen,…we have prompt that says…the user's password must be changed…before logging in.…We'll take care of that quickly.…And now that the password…has been successfully changed…we can access the console…of our virtual machine.…Now, I'm going to move away from…the vSphere Client for a few moments…and launch the vSphere Web Client.…Now, that's where we're actually…going to create the raw device mapping…for this virtual machine.…
So, I'm going to show you the process…
