Add USB drive as the datastore of ESXi 7

1. Connect to ESXi host with SSH

2. Stop the USB arbitrator service. This service is used to passthrough USB device from an ESX/ESXi host to a virtual machine. (When disabling it, you can no longer passthrough USB devices to VMs)

~# /etc/init.d/usbarbitrator stop

3. Use this command to permanently disable the USB arbitrator service after reboot (optional)

~# /etc/init.d/usbarbitrator stop

4. Plug in the USB device to your ESXi host. While connecting the USB device you can either watch /var/log/vmkernel.log to identify the device name or identify it within /dev/disks.
Devices are either named mpx.vmhbaXX or with an naa.X number.

~# ls /dev/disks/

5. Write a GPT label to the device (Assuming that the Device ID is naa.5000000000000001)

~# partedUtil mklabel /dev/disks/naa.5000000000000001 gpt

6. To create a partition you need to know the start sector, end sector, which depends on the device size and the GUID.
The start sector is always 2048
The GUID for VMFS is AA31E02A400F11DB9590000C2911D1B8
The end sector can be calculated with the following formula (Use the numbers from getptbl): 

~# partedUtil getptbl /dev/disks/naa.5000000000000001 gpt 15566 255 63 25006968015566 * 255 * 63 - 1 = 250067789

You can also calculate the end sector with the following command:

~# eval expr $(partedUtil getptbl /dev/disks/naa.5000000000000001 | tail -1 | awk '{print $1 " \\* " $2 " \\* " $3}') - 1 250067789

7. Create the VMFS partition (Replace with your end sector)

~# partedUtil setptbl /dev/disks/naa.5000000000000001 gpt "1 2048 250067789 AA31E02A400F11DB9590000C2911D1B8 0"

8. Format the partition with VMFS5 or VMFS6 

~ # vmkfstools -C vmfs5 -S USB-Datastore /dev/disks/naa.5000000000000001:1
~# vmkfstools -C vmfs6 -S USB-Datastore /dev/disks/naa.5000000000000001:1

The USB-Datastore should now appear in your datastores view.

First, let’s install the RADIUS server, FreeRADIUS. On the server that is going to host it do:

sudo apt-get install freeradius make

There are many different ways that FreeRADIUS can be configured, and honestly I don’t understand most of them. Here’s what I found that worked for me.

Turn off the proxy feature on the server (unless you know you need it) by editing /etc/freeradius/radiusd.conf and changing the following line:

proxy_requests = no

You may also want to look over the logging features in that configuration file to set what gets logged and where. I use “auth=yes” in the log{} block so that I log every time someone connects to the wifi. It also tells me which access point they connected to.
