ESXi as base for a virtualized NAS/SAN appliance (napp-in-one)

For napp-in-one, you can use a free or licenced edition of ESXi.

1. Download ESXi setup ISO and install from CD/DVD to a local disk or USB stick

ESXi is a type-1 barebone virtualizer. It runs directly on hardware. Think of it like a bios extension to run systems like BSD, Linux, OSX, Solaris or Windows side by side.

You can manage single ESXi servers with a free Windows application (vsphere). After setup, ESXi comes with a 60 day trial of all commercial features. From your download you can request a final free key for unlimited usage of ESXi without the commercial add-ons.

ESXi release:
ESXi 6.7u1

There are problems with Intel Optane NVMe pass-through
A workaround is to add Optane 900P device ID to

enable SSH on ESXi and login via WinSCP as user root

- edit /etc/vmware/
- add following lines at the end of the file:

# Intel Optane 900P
8086 2700 d3d0 false

- restart hypervisor
