SCSI-controllers

scsi0.present = "FALSE"
scsi1.present = "FALSE"
scsi2.present = "FALSE"
scsi3.present = "FALSE"
this four lines disable all virtual SCSI-hardware

 


scsi0.present = "TRUE"
scsi0.virtualDev = "buslogic"
this two lines add a BUSLOGIC-SCSI-controller to the VM.
Don NOT specify the PCI-slot


scsi0.present = "TRUE"
scsi0.virtualDev = "lsilogic"
this two lines add a LSI LOGIC-SCSI-controller to the VM.
Do NOT specify the PCI-slot

 

scsi0.present = "TRUE"
scsi0.virtualDev = "lsisas1068"
this two lines add a LSI LOGIC-SAS SCSI-controller to the VM.
Do NOT specify the PCI-slot


scsi0.present = "TRUE"
scsi0.virtualDev = "pvscsi"
this two lines add the paravirtual -SCSI-controller to the VM.

Do NOT specify the PCI-slot




SCSI-devices

To add a scsi-device you also need one of the snippets for the SCSI-Controller

scsi0:0.present = "TRUE"
scsi0:0.fileName = "scsi.vmdk"
this two lines add a regular virtual disk to the VM .
Adjust SCSI-ID as needed


 

scsi0:0.present = "TRUE"
scsi0:0.deviceType = "cdrom-image"
scsi0:0.fileName = "install.iso"
scsi0:0.startConnected = "TRUE"
this  lines add a an ISO-file as a CD-device to the VM.
Adjust SCSI-ID as needed


 

 

scsi0:0.present = "TRUE"
scsi0:0.startConnected = "TRUE"
scsi0:0.deviceType = "cdrom-raw"
scsi0:0.filename = "E:"
scsi0:0.startConnected = "TRUE"
on a Windows-host this lines add a CD-writer connected to driveletter E: to the VM.
The VM can NOT boot from it but it can be used for writing from the VM.
Adjust SCSI-ID as needed




scsi0:0.present = "TRUE"
scsi0:0.startConnected = "TRUE"
scsi0:0.deviceType = "cdrom-raw"
scsi0:0.filename = "/dev/hdc"
scsi0:0.startConnected = "TRUE"
on a Linux-host this lines add a CD-writer  to the VM.
The VM can NOT boot from it but it can be used for writing from the VM.
