I have a Poweredge 2950 that host Vmware esxi. I have no NaS or SAn , only local disk. I have two vm's on local disk. i use an HBA Emulex adapter LP9802 for connect the Host to our Dell ML600 robotic library. I have configure scsi device such as Medium changer and tape drive in ESXI for both VM's. The conflict is when i have one of the VM running, i cannot open the second one. I receive en error for the scsi devices UNABLE TO Open SCSI DEVICE.
So i think there is an issue with the sharing of the scsi device. How can i fix it? How can i use the same HBA adapter for multiple VM's on the same Host? Thanks
