to the .vmx configuration file on your ESXi server.
This behavior might be caused by cached SCSI INQUIRY data that interferes with specific guest operating systems and applications.
When the ESXi host first connects to a target storage device on a SAN, it issues the SCSI INQUIRY command to obtain basic identification data from the device. By default, ESXi caches the received SCSI INQUIRY data (Standard, page 80, and page 83) and the data remains unchanged afterwards.
