Syba PEX-40008 attached disks+HBA not showing in Settings\Disks
Super newbie here, just learned about Nexenta recently. I'm running 3.1.1-6829 in an ESXi 5.0U1 environment. I'm giving the NexentaStor VM direct access to a Syba PEX-40008 via passthrough (IOMMU on a Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3). I've confirmed that if I assign the hba to a Windows machine the disks show up... but I'm lost when it comes to Nexenta.
I've gotten as far as Settings > Disks > Refresh... > Rescan all HBAs and refresh device links
or from the console typing SHOW ALL and noticing the last line is this...
03:00.0 SATA controller: Silicon Image, Inc. SiI 3124 PCI-X Serial ATA Controller (rev 02)
From here I don't have the slightest but I'm hitting the docs to see if I can find any clues. I figured I'd post to the 'newbie' forum while I'm digging.

I saw this recent post below
"f you login as root to nexentastor, can you see if format sees the drive?
If it doesn't you can run
Neither of the two commands return anything. When I type "#format" or "#devfsadm -C" all I get is a blank line.

Didn't realize I had to be in !bash to issue the format command. That being said, drives are still not showing, but the HBA shows under show all. I also updated to 3.1.3 last night, so I am on the most current version.

can you see the drives from vmware?
