I am using ESXi and I passed the NVME drive to a Hyper-v 2016 install and I can't see the drive in disport -> list disk. Any idea on how to get it working? I'm trying to set up a star wind HA setup and I would like the most performance so I passed the NVME device directly to HyperV.

From time to time, I answer my own questions :)

I had to use powershell, get-physicaldisk would show the NVME drive but operational status would show "starting"

I then used reset-physicaldisk -friendname "Name From Above" and once I did that, I was able to see the drive using get-disk and do the usual partitioning and formatting.
