After you add a volume of external storage to a VM, save the VM before you modify the volume.

To modify a VM volume:

  1. Go to Virtual datacenters → edit VM → Storage
  2. Select the attached volume and click the pencil edit button
  3. Modify the controller type and controller as required

Controller type

Select from the list of controllers: IDE, SCSI, SATA (ESXi), VIRTIO (KVM)


ESXi only. The user can enter one of the controllers supported by their platform, which may include:

  • "paravirtual" - ParaVirtualSCSIController
  • "bus" - VirtualBusLogicController
  • "sas" - VirtualLsiLogicSASController
  • "lsilogic" - VirtualLsiLogicController

To make other changes to a volume (e.g. resize), go to the Virtual datacenters view on the Volumes tab. See Manage Persistent Storage and VMs#Managepersistentvolumes
