I have read about ESX servers and the SAN but still have some questions:
when installing ESX Server Does it need to be connected to the SAN and Zoned prior to ESX install?
When Installing ESX server are there any files that need to be installed locally and others that need to be installed in the SAN?
how does VMFS get installed in the SAN?
Is one LUN in the SAN hosts the VMFS file for each ESX server or can be more than one LUN for one ESX server?
DO virtual machines(guests) use the VMFS assigned to their Host(ESX server) on that LUN assigned to the ESX server? or can they use other VMFS assigned to othe ESX servers?
As of virtual machines when they get created, I am not sure what files get installed locally and what files get installed in the SAN.
