How to Tag Disk as SSD in VMware ESXi 5.5 and 6.0
You installed an SSD drive in your ESXi host and it shows up as Non-SSD in the configuration pane.
Use SSH to tag the disk as SSD
run this command to get your disk ID
esxcli storage nmp device list
then use your disk ID in the following 2 commands
esxcli storage nmp satp rule add -s VMW_SATP_LOCAL -d naa.6848f690e18529001f8b0f690e5f85b9 -o enable_ssd
esxcli storage core claiming reclaim -d naa.6848f690e18529001f8b0f690e5f85b9
And make sure to reboot the host after the last step to make it work.
If you get this error, just reboot the server.
