For your information, Sangfor HCI need to use enterprise level hard disk to ensure business performance and reliability.
Kindly ensure the disk is enterprise level and the performance meet the minimum requirements(30k and above).
If the disk is enterprise level, you may contact Sangfor support engineer to further verify.
Is this answer helpful?

If you're encountering an error when trying to create a virtual storage using SSD disks, there could be a few potential reasons for the issue. Here are some steps you can take to troubleshoot and potentially bypass the problem:

Verify Hardware Compatibility: Ensure that your virtualization platform supports SSD disks. Check the documentation or specifications for your virtualization software to confirm whether SSDs are compatible and supported for creating virtual storage.

Check Disk Format and Compatibility: Ensure that the SSD disks you are using are in a format compatible with your virtualization platform. Some virtualization software may require specific disk formats (e.g., VMDK for VMware, VHD for Hyper-V). If the disks are not in the correct format, you may need to convert or reformat them to the appropriate format.

Check Disk Controller Compatibility: Verify that your virtualization platform supports the disk controller used by the SSDs. Certain disk controllers may not be recognized or supported by the virtualization software, leading to errors when attempting to create virtual storage. Consult the documentation or support resources for your virtualization software to confirm the compatible disk controllers.

Update Virtualization Software: Ensure that you have the latest version of your virtualization software installed. Updates often include bug fixes, performance enhancements, and improved hardware compatibility. Upgrading to the latest version may resolve any known issues related to SSD disk support.

Check BIOS/UEFI Settings: Confirm that your server's BIOS or UEFI settings are correctly configured to recognize and utilize the SSD disks. Ensure that the disk controller mode is set appropriately (e.g., AHCI or RAID) and that any necessary BIOS/UEFI updates are applied.

Troubleshoot SSD Disks: If the virtualization software is still not recognizing the SSD disks, you may want to troubleshoot the disks themselves. Test the SSDs on a physical machine to ensure they are functioning properly. Check for any firmware updates or specific SSD settings that may need to be adjusted.

Consult Vendor Support: If you have gone through the above steps and the issue persists, it is recommended to reach out to the support channels of your virtualization software vendor. Provide them with detailed information about the error you are encountering and the steps you have taken so far. They can provide specific guidance and assist you in resolving the issue.

Keep in mind that the exact steps and options available may vary depending on the specific virtualization software you are using. It is important to refer to the documentation and support resources provided by your virtualization software vendor for accurate guidance.

Hi,

Make sure the necessarily reduced memory in the virtual machine does not cause a lot of swapping, as this will certainly reduce the SSD life, since all reads and writes are in the same area of disc.

Thanks

Check for Hardware Compatibility: Check to see whether your virtualization platform supports SSD drives. Check the literature or specs for your virtualization program to see if SSDs are suitable and supported for virtual storage creation.

Check Disk Controller Compatibility: Confirm that the disk controller used by the SSDs is supported by your virtualization environment. Certain disk controllers may not be recognized or supported by virtualization software, resulting in problems while creating virtual storage. To ensure the compatible disk controllers, consult the documentation or support resources for your virtualization program.

Bypassing the error related to SSD disks for virtual storage would depend on the specific details of the error and the virtualization platform you are using. However, some potential solutions include ensuring that your virtualization platform supports SSD disks, updating firmware or drivers, checking disk compatibility, or adjusting disk settings.

SSD Disk Troubleshooting: If the virtualization program is still not recognizing the SSD drives, you may want to look into the disks themselves. To check that the SSDs are working correctly, test them on a real system. Examine the SSD for any firmware upgrades or particular SSD settings that may need to be changed.
