What is VMware Paravirtual and How to Change from LSI Logic SAS to VMware Paravirtual?
VMware Paravirtual (PV) is a virtual storage controller that offers high-performance I/O for virtual machines (VMs) running on VMware platforms. It provides optimized communication between the guest operating system and the hypervisor, resulting in improved storage performance.
The LSI Logic SAS (Serial-Attached SCSI) controller, on the other hand, is a different type of virtual storage controller commonly used in VMware environments. However, in certain scenarios, converting from LSI Logic SAS to VMware Paravirtual can offer performance benefits.
Let’s see how you change SCSI controller LSI Logic SAS to VMware Paravirtual.
- Add a new SCSI Controller and select the type VMware Paravirtual.
- After adding controller you will see “VMware PVSCSI Controller” in the Device Manager.
- You need add a new hard disk to assign VMware Paravirtual controller. You may give 1 gb disk space for this perform and select new controller you added in the first step.
- You should add the disk previously assigned to the server.
- Shut down the machine and edit settings of virtual machine. Select the SCSI controller you want change and select VMware Paravirtual.
- Remove the hard disk and SCSI controller before you added.
- After all this you can power on your virtual machine as you see below it will boot with VMware Paravirtual controller.
