Cannot change the host configuration

You need to run the following command for each disk that you’re having issues with (this overwrites the partition table with a standard msdos one which VMware can work with);
NOTE: This will ERASE ALL DATA on the disk in question so be careful to select the right disks!

Within the vSphere client under Configuration – Security Profile start the ESXi Shell and SSH services
Use a terminal program of your choice (e.g. Putty or XShell) and connect to the ESXi server

I use powercli:
connect-viserver -Server 192.168.1.123ip -User root -Password passwordforthe server

Find the Disk ID for the array (cd /dev/disks then ls)
Run the following command to partition them –

# partedUtil mklabel /dev/disks/01000000005332554c4a39464336303933383920202020202053543634304c msdos
