Mount SATA DISK in Ubuntu VM ESXI5

Sometimes, we need to do things in different ways.

I’ve a new ESXI 5 Server, and i want to have a NAS virtual machine on it.

The problem is that ESXI doen’t not support direct access to SATA drives, and use virtual image disks for a NAS is not a good thing (very bad performance).

For bypass this problem, we use Raw Disk Mapping (RDM).
